BEIRUT: Comments made by Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah against Saudi Arabia that created uproar in Lebanon will not affect dialogue between Hezbollah and the Future Movement, Speaker Nabih Berri said Wednesday.
“Dialogue between Hezbollah and Future Movement is ongoing and will not be affected by the recent political wrangling,” Berri was quoted as telling visitors and lawmakers.
Future Movement head Saad Hariri Wednesday lambasted Hezbollah chief Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah for "luring" Lebanon’s official television channel into airing his “offensive” remarks against Riyadh.
Nasrallah said that since the Syrian conflict erupted more than four years ago, Lebanon has been facing a conspiracy led by countries like Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Turkey.
Saudi Arabia has led a coalition against Houthi rebels fighting in Yemen.
Berri said only dialogue and political solutions will end armed conflicts in the Middle East.
“Regional crises can only be addressed through dialogue and political solutions,” Berri was quoted as saying.
“This approach is an effective method to achieve the interests of the peoples of the region," he added.
