BEIRUT: Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah slammed Arab states Thursday, saying they were willing to make “dangerous” concessions over the Palestinian cause.

“Arabs today, and I stress today, are more willing to make concessions over the Palestinian cause. Regrettably, this occurring after the Arab Spring,” Nasrallah said during a televised speech. 

"The sight of a number of Arab foreign ministers, including ministers from Arab Spring countries, with the U.S. foreign minister standing in the middle, making dangerous concessions over the Palestinian cause and Palestinian land is a sad sight for a friend of [Palestine],” he said.
