Iran official lauds Hezbollah chief’s role in resolving Lebanon crisis

Tehran Iran's minister of culture and Islamic guidance lauded the role of the Lebanese Hezbollah chief in resolving the current political crisis in this Arab country.

Abbas Salehi said that Secretary General of Lebanon's Hezbollah resistance movement Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah's prudence and patience helped return of the country's Prime Minister Saad Hariri who resigned recently under Saudi Arabia pressure.

'Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah with prudence and patience, brought back Saad Hariri from Saudi Arabia to Lebanon and defused the crisis. If courage is accompanied by wisdom it will be everlasting,' he added.

Hariri announced his resignation from premiership on Nov 4 from Riyadh in an unexpected move, but the Lebanese President Michel Aoun didn't accept his resignation and urged him to return to Lebanon to detail on it.

Hariri left Riyadh for Paris on last Saturday.

Most Lebanese, including the president, believe that Hariri and his family were in custody in Saudi Arabia and he has been coerced to resign. Some high-ranking authorities, like German ones, and international media believe the same thing.

With French President Emmanuel Macron and Minister of Foreign Affairs Jean-Yves Le Drian's mediation and international pressure, the Saudis let Hariri and his wife leave for Paris.
