Nasrallah: Iran, Hezbollah support any form of ceasefire in Syria

Beirut, Feb 13, IRNA - Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah stressed on Sunday that Iran and Hezbollah back a ceasefire agreement and the halt of bloodshed in Syria as it will help national reconciliation in that country.

He made the remarks while addressing a ceremony, via video conference broadcast live by the Al-Manar, to commemorate one of Hezbollah late officials, Sheikh Hussein Obeid, in Baalbek city in northeastern Lebanon.

Nasrallah said that Hezbollah “supports the ceasefire agreement concluded in Astana and the reconciliation pacts among the Syrians in Syria, denying the media reports which accused Hezbollah of rejecting the truce.

“Countries themselves which own those media outlets are still funding and arming the armed groups to continue the war in Syria,' Nasrallah stressed.

Noting that 'Iran stands by any political settlement to end the crisis in Syria,' Nasrallah said that Hezbollah has also 'contributed to the internal reconciliations in Syria.”

He added that Hezbollah has worked with the Syrian government and a number of countries to treat the hard conditions of the besieged towns like Foua, Kefraya, Zabadani, Madaya and others.

Noting that there are no forced demographic changes in Syria and called on Muslim, Arab and independent delegations to visit Syria “to verify that there are no demographic changes, adding that these lies are aimed at sectarian incitement.

“The countries and the media outlets which promote such reports lost all the logical reasons for continuing the war so they resort to such lies and claims, according to Sayyed Nasrallah.

Sayyed Nasrallah also tackled the issue of the Syrian refugees in Lebanon, saying that the military victories in Syria, the last of which in Aleppo, have opened the door for national reconciliations in Syria and turned vast areas of Syria into safe regions.
