Hezbollah Deputy Secretary General Sheikh Naim Qassem welcomed on Thursday the Syrian ambassador to Lebanon, Ali Abdul Karim Ali, in presence of the Head of the ‘Loyalty to Resistance’ parliamentary bloc, Hajj Mohammad Raad, and the member of the Party’s politburo, Hajj Mahmoud Qoumati.
During the meeting, Sheikh Qassem thanked Syria for facilitating the passage of the Iranian diesel imports and taking the positive measures to transfer the Egyptian gas as well as the Jordanian electric power into Lebanon.
His eminence called for re-bridging the normal Lebanese-Syrian ties, considering that breaking the US siege on Syria through violating the hostile Caesar Law embarks a stage of economic victories which will serve the interests of Beirut and Damascus.
Sheikh Qassem also maintained that Hezbollah is confronting the economic siege in order to protect the Lebanese citizens socioeconomically and politically just as it confronted the Israeli occupation to liberate the land and man, vowing to confront all what threatens the national dignity and independence in face of the US-Israeli aggression.
