Nasrallah: We don’t leave Syria for a couple of seats

Hezbollah Chief Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah says his movement is present in Syria because “We want to defend Lebanon, Syria, Palestine and resistance against all threats that have targeted us and until these threats persist, our presence will also be persistent”.
Speaking on the occasion of Ashura Muslim holiday in southern Lebanese capital Beirut, Nasrallah said, “once again we have gathered like every other year to pledge loyalty to Imam Hussain (PBUH) and reject suffering and humiliation”.
He said the resistance rejects dividing up countries in any way and believes in solving internal problems with dialogue, wisdom and political solutions.
Hezbollah chief defended his group’s presence along Syria borders and said, “as we have said before, our presence in Syria is to defend Lebanon, Syria, Palestine and resistance against all threats that have targeted us and until these threats persist, our presence will also be persistent”.
He criticized the Lebanese opposition March 14 group for calling on Hezbollah, one of the most powerful parties in the political scene of Lebanon, to pull out from Syria in order to have a share in the government and said, “those who speak of Hezbollah pullout from Syria for forming the government are proposing impracticable conditions, while they know we don’t leave up Lebanon, Syria and resistance axis for a couple of seats (in the government) ”.
Nasrallah was speaking to tens of thousands of people who took to the streets of south Beirut to commemorate Ashura, the most important date on the Shiite Muslim calendar.
Ashura, which climaxes on Thursday, commemorates the death of Imam Hussein, the grandson of the Prophet Mohammed (PBUH).
