"The resistance movement [Hezbollah] is Lebanon’s main force that opposes the US-Zionist project. And the movement is under attack from different directions … [The task of the United States and the European Union] is to create obstacles during the formation of a new government and to meddle in its work," Sukkari stated.
According to the lawmaker, Washington and its allies are imposing sanctions following a failure of anti-Shiite parties to win the majority of parliament seats during the last election, which took place in the country on May 6.
Sukkari also said that the United States was trying to adopt a new UN Security Council resolution like the one which in 2004 obliged Syria, Hezbollah’s ally, to withdraw its troops from Lebanon, the presence of which was legitimized by Beirut.
"All such actions are aimed to create disorder in Lebanon through posing obstacles for the government’s formation until the difference between Hezbollah’s political and military wings will not be eliminated," he said, adding that the party is considering a possible response.
