BEIRUT: Caretaker Minister of State Mohammad Fneish said Monday that Hezbollah insists on “true partnership” with any future Lebanese government in order to achieve stability.
Fneish called for “the return to the logic of the state, institution-building and the formation of a government of true partnership,” the state-run National News Agency reported.
The NNA said Fneish’s remarks came during a ceremony to celebrate the launch of "Charity Week," which is organized by an Islamic charity association in the southern city of Tyre.
Fneish accused rivals in the Future Movement-led March 14 alliance of lack of responsibility.
“This [true partnership] is our demand and we will hold onto this position perhaps the other [March 14] camp will show responsibility toward the nation,” he said.
Meanwhile, Hezbollah MP Nawaf Mousawi warned against betting on guarantees from foreign countries.
"We cannot bet on international guarantees for the survival of Lebanon and we cannot rely on political promises to keep Lebanon in a state of stability,” Musawi said in remarks published by NNA.
“What makes stability in Lebanon is the might of the resistance [Hezbollah],” he said.
