|No president can disarm Hezbollah: Lebanese MP||
The next president of Lebanon will not be able to eliminate Hezbollah's arms, Lebanese presidential candidate MP Henri Helou said in remarks published Monday.
“Can any candidate, and I do not mean [Lebanese Forces leader] Samir Geagea specifically, do anything about Hezbollah’s weapons or about Hezbollah’s intervention in Syria?” Helou, from Walid Jumblatt's bloc in parliament, said in an interview to An-Nahar daily.
“Of course we can talk about this issue, but in depth the matter is bigger than [Lebanon] and it is related to the fate of the region and [political] equations,” Helou said.
“On the other hand, there are urgent issues that we can discuss and reach solutions for, such as the economic and living conditions for the Lebanese,” he said.
