Hezbollah Secretary-General Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah Sunday said that it's in Lebanon's interests to coordinate with Syria after a recent row between officials and ministers in government over the issue. In televised address during a ceremony in Marjayoun's Khiam dubbed "The Period of Victory," to mark the 11th anniversary of the end of the 2006 War, Nasrallah said coordinating with Syria would benefit the country's businesses – especially the agricultural industry – in cross-border trade. Nasrallah's remarks came as he touched on recent political debate over a visit by several ministers to Syria and discussions over whether the Syrian and Lebanese armies should coordinate in the fight against militants along the border.A controversial visit by Hezbollah Industry Minister Hussein Hajj Hasan and Amal Movement Agriculture Minister Ghazi Zeaiter to Syria this week was met with opposition by some politicians. Israel, Nasrallah added, continues to talk about the increase in Hezbollah's power both in terms of personnel and weapons.
