Hezbollah media officer Ibrahim al-Moussawi told AFP on Wednesday that his party welcomes the meeting between the Progressive Socialist Party leader and the Syrian President.
“This strengthens Lebanon’s position in the face of Israeli aggression,” Moussawi added.
Hezbollah has played a mediating role in Nasrallah and Jumblatt’s rapprochement, he also said.
