Prime Minister Tammam Salam Saturday sought to end a week-long controversy over comments made by Hezbollah's leader criticizing Bahrain over its crackdown on dissidents, saying the remarks did not represent the position of Lebanon.Lebanon's official position on regional and international issues can only be voiced by the Lebanese government, he emphasized.The Arab League publicly censured Lebanon in a statement two days ago over comments made by Hezbollah chief Hasan Nasrallah in which he denounced Bahrain's recent arrest of the country's main political opposition leader Ali Salman and its crackdown on anti-regime protesters. Nasrallah's criticism led Bahrain to summon Lebanon's envoy over the speech earlier this week.
