Naim Qassem: US positions against interests of regional nations

Tehran, Feb 25, IRNA - Lebanese Hezbollah deputy secretary general says the US positions on the region are cruel and dictatorial which violates the interests of the regional nations.

Sheikh Naim Qassem called the aim of the so-called 'Deal of the Century' the destruction of Palestine and the Palestinians, which is due to the comprehensive support of US officials and its President Donald Trump of the Zionist regime, IRNA quoted Al-Manar's TV on Sunday night.

Recalling the role of the United States in the Syrian crisis, the high-ranking official went on to say, 'If we are waiting for the settlement of the Syrian crisis and the problem of refugees and other problems caused by the war in Syria, we must not forget that America is the main cause of the war in Syria and the transfer of Takfiris from all over the world to this country as well as destruction of Syria. Moreover, the United States has led the war in Syria to continue for seven years, and so far no solution has been found.”

Sheikh Naim Qassem pointed out that the United States, despite successive failures, is still not prepared to admit its defeat. It uses the most brutal methods to achieve its goals and prevents Syria from returning to stability.

He also referred to some Persian Gulf Cooperation Council (PGCC) members as elements engaging in destructive wars in the region, including against Iran, Iraq, Syria and Yemen, and an attempt to win American support for upholding their throne of their rulers.

Hezbollah's deputy secretary general said that trust in God and self-confidence was a victory factor against the enemy and highlighted, 'We expelled the Zionist regime from Lebanon with withstand, and with resistance, we created a balance of deterrence, and with resistance, a Palestinian is a flame for confrontation with the Zionists.

He also noted that Takfiri terrorism in the region was beaten by resistance, including in Syria, Iraq and Lebanon, and, thanks to this resistance, the United States could not achieve its goals in the region.
