Hezbollah slams French FM statement


In a Friday statement Hezbollah slammed French Foreign Minister Bernard Kouchner’s statements regarding Israel following his yesterday’s meeting with Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri.

Kouchner has reportedly stated that Lebanon’s problem is with Hezbollah and not Israel, because the militant group could launch an attack against Israel to appease Iran.

“If there was a threat to Lebanon, it will only come from a military adventure carried out by Hezbollah in the best interest of Iran,” Kouchner warned.

Hezbollah accused Kouchner of being an accomplice to Israel and supporting the country in its aggression against Lebanon. The statement called on French authorities to be more responsible since they pretend to care about Lebanon’s sovereignty.
