Former Prime Minister Saad Hariri said Hezbollah's pullout from Syria could put an end to suicide bomb attacks that have struck Lebanese areas where the group enjoys wide support.The head of the Future Movement said Lebanon began facing security problems after Hezbollah decided to intervene militarily in Syria last year to support President Bashar Assad's forces.Hariri and his allies in the March 14 coalition have repeatedly called on Hezbollah to withdraw its fighters from Syria in line with the previous government's self-declared disassociation policy on the war in Syria.Hariri urged Hezbollah to think of Lebanon's interests first, saying the party would not be able to take over the country.Hariri said the war in Syria was long, adding that the Assad regime would eventually fall.Hariri vowed to prevent the country from slipping into a presidential vacuum when President Michel Sleiman's six-year term expires on May 25 .
