Arab League states condemn Hezbollah as 'terrorist organization'


Nasrallah heaped criticism on Arab foreign ministers who accused his group of terrorism at an emergency Arab League meeting convened at the behest of Saudi Arabia on Sunday. "We want to hold countries where Hezbollah is a partner in government responsible, specifically Lebanon".

Saudi Arabia urged fellow Arab League nations to find a "non-compromise" solution to deal with "Iran's aggression" and "disregard for global law" during a specially-summoned foreign ministers' meeting in the Egyptian capital, Cairo.

In a statement that party called on Arab states to "support the legitimate struggle of the Palestinian people" and urged them to work together to solve their differences through dialogue. "What is expected from the Arabs is to undertake their national responsibilities", al-Jubeir said.

Saudi Arabia and its allies Sunday lashed out at alleged Iranian violations in the region amid tensions between Riyadh and Tehran. President Michel Aoun, has refused to accept Hariri's resignation and accused Saudi Arabia of holding him against his will. Hariri and Saudi Arabia deny the allegations.

The foreign ministers of Saudi Arabia, Egypt, UAE, and Bahrain also held a separate meeting ahead of the main session to discuss a unified stance against Iran.

He even went on saying that missile which was sacked by Houthis towards Riyadh was "Iranian made" and called is as an "unacceptable Iranian message".




The Saudi Foreign Minister said his country was targeted by a total of 80 ballistic missiles fired by Yemen's Iranian-backed Shiite militia since the Kingdom in 2015 led a coalition to fight them alongside the internationally recognized government there. Hariri recently traveled to France from Saudi Arabia, where he had made the announcement.

Sunni Muslim Sunni Saudi Arabia and Shiite Iran have had no diplomatic ties since January 2016 and back opposing sides in several regional conflicts, including the wars in Yemen and Syria, as well as the Lebanese issue.

Lebanese foreign minister Gebran Bassil -a member of the Hizbollah-allied Free Patriotic Movement and the Lebanese president's son-in-law - did not attend the Cairo meeting.

Lebanon was among the countries that voted in favour of the Arab League resolution, except for the points in which Hizbollah was mentioned.

"That doesn't mean they agree to the escalation of Iranian interference in various Arab countries, but paradoxically it was the incompetence and the division among those Arab countries that was the main factor why Iran is able to expand its influence in the region", added Bishara.
