'The secretary general of the Lebanese Hezbollah resistance movement says the country’s prime minister has been under pressure to resign his post.
Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah made the remarks in a speech on Sunday after the country’s prime minister, Saad Hariri, announced his resignation through a televised statement from Saudi Arabia on Saturday, citing fears about his life and accusing Iran and the Hezbollah movement of interfering in internal affairs of Arab countries.
Nasrallah noted that the announcement of Hariri’s resignation came after a number of visits to Saudi Arabia, adding that the text and style of his resignation clearly showed that it was not his own text and was a Saudi text dictated to the Lebanese prime minister.
"So far, we have reached the conclusion that nobody in Lebanon knows what the real reason behind Hariri’s resignation is and everybody has been taken by surprise in this regard," Hezbollah leader noted.
"Some people in Lebanon say the prime minister has been angry with some people and currents, but these remarks are not accurate and the main reason behind his resignation should be sought in Saudi Arabia," he added.'
