Hizbullah's Loyalty to Resistance parliamentary bloc warned Thursday that remarks by Central Bank Governor Riad Salameh about the suspension of 100 Hizbullah-linked bank accounts reflect an inclination to renounce “national sovereignty.”
“The policy of blackmail and various type of pressures that the U.S. administrations practice against countries and forces that are opposed to their policies will never manage to arm-twist Hizbullah or change its stances against the U.S. tyranny and injustice,” the bloc said in a statement.
“The current U.S. administration's targeting of the resistance and its supporters through the Lebanese banking sector is doomed to fail and will not succeed in achieving its objectives,” Loyalty to Resistance stressed.
“The government and the Central Bank are directly concerned with protecting Lebanon's sovereignty and its monetary and social stability,” the bloc added.
Commenting on Salameh's latest statements, Loyalty to Resistance described them as “ambiguous and suspicious.”
