Former Prime Minister Saad Hariri slammed Hezbollah leader Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah over the weekend for remarks he made against Saudi Arabia, saying he and Iran were exploiting the deaths of over 700 pilgrims during the annual hajj to settle political scores with the kingdom.Hariri said Nasrallah's words totally matched the "provocative" remarks made by Khamenei.Hariri also mocked Nasrallah's claim that the Islamic Republic did not interfere in Syria's affairs.In the interview, Nasrallah said that his party's fighters and the Syrian army could have finished the battle for the Syrian border town of Zabadani in a couple of weeks but held off to free two Shiite villages in the northwestern Idlib province.Turning to local crises, Nasrallah reiterated Hezbollah's support for Free Patriotic Movement leader Michel Aoun's presidential aspirations.Separately, Prime Minister Tammam Salam said he was eager to maintain the best relations with Bahrain, saying in a statement that it was the Lebanese government that exclusively expressed the stance of Lebanon regarding foreign relations.His remarks came after Nasrallah attacked Bahrain during the interview.
