Hezbollah denies developments in Arab world as "sectarian conflict"

Beirut, Jan. 26 (Xinhua-ANI): Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah, Secretary General of Hezbollah, said Friday that the developments in the Arab world are not "sectarian conflict."

In a televised speech marking the birthday of Prophet Mohammed, Nasrallah said "it is not true that what's happening in the Arab region is a sectarian conflict."

"Political objectives... were behind all the conflicts and wars that happened, which had little to do with religion or with Sunnis and Shiites," said Nasrallah. "Many current conflicts are political and have nothing to do with religions."

"We must keep any conflict away from sectarian incitement," Nasrallah said, calling for dialogue in Syria, Bahrain, Iraq, Tunisia, Egypt and Lebanon.

As for the Syrian crisis, Nasrallah said "all the military, regional and international developments indicate that the dreams of many parties will not come true concerning the situation in Syria."

On the outcome of Israel's legislative elections, Nasrallah said "no one should bet on any party in Israel, because Israeli left and right parties are the same concerning the Arab rights." (Xinhua-ANI)
