Sheikh Qassem: Ball in Hariri’s Court, He Knows What to Do

shaikh_naim_qasimHezbollah Deputy Secretary General Sheikh Naim Qassem stressed on Saturday that the Resistance party has fully played its role, emphasizing that the responsibility now lies on the other party to guarantee the success of Saudi and Syrian mediation to solve the Lebanese crisis.Speaking to Lebanese daily As-Safir, Sheikh Qassem said that Prime Minister Saad Hariri knows what to do, stressing that  the ball was in his court.We are pushing towards this solution because it’s the best for everyone, but in agreements there isn’t anything called an 80 percent or 90 percent success. They would either be implemented or not, meaning it’s either white or black,” Sheikh Qassem said.We are now waiting for the official Syrian and Saudi announcement that the settlement succeeded,” Hezbollah Deputy Secretary General said. “Nobody can set a specific timing for such announcement because there are some details which depend on the mediators’ follow up,” his eminence added.

Sheikh Qassem said that the final settlement should be announced soon, adding that there was a conflict between announcing the settlement and releasing the indictment in the assassination of former Prime Minister Rafiq Hariri, given that its release would change everything since what precedes the indictment is not the same as what follows it. That’s why accelerating the solution is in everybody’s interest.”

When asked about the international tribunal, Sheikh Qassem reiterated that it was clear the court was established to target the Resistance group and Syria.
