BEIRUT: Hezbollah official Ammar Moussawi discussed with Cuba’s ambassador to Beirut Friday the situation in Lebanon as well as the crisis in Syria.

A statement issued by Hezbollah’s media office said Moussawi slammed the West over “the war on terrorism,” describing it as hypocritical.

In the statement, Moussawi slammed “the hypocrisy on the part of Western countries where in some places they declare to be spearheading the war on terrorism while in other places they provide support and assistance to other forms of terrorism.”

The short statement came following a meeting between Moussawi and Cuban Ambassador Rene Ceballo Prats.

He also criticized Arab states and the international community for “lamenting” over the Syrian refugee crisis.

“What did the international community or even the Arab states provide these [refugees] with?,” Moussawi asked, “especially those countries that spend hundreds of millions of dollars on weapons and rebels when they cannot find something to offer with regard to this humanitarian issue, which is worsening due to these countries’ insistence on keeping the Syrian flame burning.”
