"And I have found both freedom and safety in my madness, the freedom of loneliness and the safety from being understood, for those who understand us enslave something in us. But let me not be too proud of my safety. Even a Thief in a jail is safe from another thief. "

Nasrallah urges domestic presidency solution, says keen on FPM ties - Naharnet

Hezbollah chief Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah on Tuesday stressed that “domestic” dialogue must be held to agree on a new president for the country and that Hezbollah is keen on resolving the "dispute" with the Free Patriotic Movement through “communication.”

In a televised speech marking the third anniversary of the assassination of top Iranian general Qasem Soleimani and Iraqi militant commander Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, Nasrallah also stressed that the Lebanese presidential file has nothing to do with the nuclear talks with Iran or the Iranian-Saudi talks.

“Further meetings and dialogue must be held and do not wait for the foreign forces,” Nasrallah added, addressing the Lebanese parties.

He also reiterated that it is Hezbollah’s “natural right” to call for a president who “would not stab the resistance in its back.”

“A president who would not stab the resistance would mean a president who would not take the country to civil war,” Nasrallah noted.

As for the latest tensions with the FPM, which are unprecedented in the history of the relation between the two allies, Nasrallah emphasized Hezbollah’s keenness on the ties between the two parties.
