A nuclear agreement between Iran and world powers will strengthen Tehran's role in the region, Hezbollah chief Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah said Monday.In a more than two-hour-long interview, Nasrallah also described Lebanon's policy of disassociation from regional conflicts as "a big lie," hitting back at critics who accuse the party of destabilizing the country with its intervention in Syria.- Hezbollah deploys in Syria where necessary -"The decision of Hezbollahs presence is fully determined by Syrian leadership whether politically or militarily," Nasrallah said.Citing an example, he said that Hezbollah is needed in Qalamoun since the area is important to both Lebanon and Syria.Nasrallah said that the Syrian conflict was hijacked by extremists groups like Al-Qaeda, which had long sought control over Syria like in Yemen.When asked about accusations of Iranian occupation of Syria, Nasrallah said that the first to talk about an occupation was Saudi Arabia because the kingdom did not acknowledge the will of free peoples.
