Hezbollah considers Prime Minister Saad Hariri's Cabinet as still functioning normally, the party's Secretary-General Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah said Friday, adding that he considers the premier's resignation unconstitutional. Nasrallah also expressed support for Hariri's Future Movement bloc and the statement it released Thursday in which it asked for the prime minister's return. Nasrallah slammed Saudi Arabia and said that the way it dealt with Hariri was an "insult" to the Lebanese and to Lebanon."Let us say things as they are: Lebanon's prime minister is detained in Saudi Arabia and he can't return to Lebanon," Nasrallah said. He accused Saudi Arabia of an attempt not only to remove Hariri from his post, but also from his position as a Sunni leader in Lebanon and head of the Future Movement. Nasrallah added that there are problems between Hezbollah and Saudi Arabia, but blasted the kingdomasking why, if its aim was to protect and save Lebanon, it was doing so with the measures that endanger the country.Nasrallah added that eliminating the resistance was not possible, warning Saudi Arabia not to even try doing so.
