Lebanon’s President Will Not Ask Hizbullah to Disarm

Lebanese President Michael Suleiman has announced that his government will not call upon Hizbullah to disarm, as is required under United Nations Resolution 1701, the Second Lebanon War ceasefire agreement. The Lebanese leader explains that now, at a time with heightened tensions with Israel is not the time for such a request.

Suleiman’s statement comes amid improved relations between Syria and Lebanon, as well as Hizbullah, as the anti-Israel triangle is working to form a united bloc against Israel, with Syria arming Hizbullah fighters in Lebanon with advanced weaponry.

Lebanon and Syria have announced that any Israeli military assault against Lebanon would result in a joint response from Syria and Lebanon.
