A nuclear agreement between Iran and world powers will strengthen Tehran's role in the region and rules out the specter of a regional war, Hezbollah chief Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah said Monday.In a more than two-hour-long interview, Nasrallah also described Lebanon's policy of disassociation from regional conflicts as "a big lie," hitting back at critics who accuse the party of destabilizing the country with its military intervention in Syria.He also vowed to bear complete responsibility for Hezbollah's intervention in Syria, saying the battle for the country remains "open ended". Nasrallah recounted examples of what he said were attempts by states to undermine "independent Syrian decisions".Nasrallah said that the Syrian conflict was hijacked by extremists groups like Al-Qaeda, which had long sought control over Syria like in Yemen.When asked about accusations of Iranian occupation of Syria, Nasrallah said that the first to talk about an occupation was Saudi Arabia because the kingdom did not acknowledge the will of free peoples.
