BEIRUT: Hezbollah Chief Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah Sunday said his party sought a president that would back rather than conspire against the resistance.

“We don’t want a president to protect the resistance. The resistance in Lebanon is the one that protects the state, the people and sovereignty,” Nasrallah said during a televised speech.

“We want a president that does not conspire against us or backstab us, but remain solid on their position to support the resistance ... that’s not a difficult condition,” he added.
