Ban Ki-moon, the secretary-General of United Nations met Lebanese prime minister Najib Mikati in Beirut on January 13, 2012. Trying to be tough guy during his next term at the UN – he advised the Zionist entity to cease violating Lebanese sovereignty and UN Security Council (UNSC) Resolution 1701. As if Benji Netanyahu gives a damn what this Washington poodle says!
“Lebanon has always respected its obligations even in the toughest times including those related to the Special Tribunal for Lebanon (STL), but only that does not safeguard stability and peace; the international community should face Israel and force it to commit to its resolutions,” Mikati’s press office quoted Ban Ki-moon as saying.
Resolution 1701 reiterates the UNSC’s strong support for the territorial integrity, sovereignty and political independence of Lebanon within its internationally recognized borders.
Ban Ki-Moon also discussed STL aka Israeli Project and disarming of Hizbullah with the prime minister and Nebih Barre, the Speaker of country’s parliament.
Ki-Moon is considered a US-Israel puppet by the Islamic Resistance Hizbullah which has three members in Najib’s 30-member cabinet. Days ahead of Ban’s visit to the region, which will also take him to Israel, top Hizbollah official Sheikh Mohammed Yazbeck said the UN leader was “not welcome” in Beirut.
Israel violates Lebanon’s airspace on an almost daily basis, claiming the flights serve surveillance purposes.
Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah, secretary General, Islamic Resistance Hizbullah said today that armed Resistance is the only way Lebanon can maintain its security and sovereignty.
In a televised speech aired on Saturday, Nasrallah said that Hezbollah would keep up its resistance against the United States and Israel.
While welcoming national dialogue aimed at increasing the country’s stability, Nasrallah added that the Lebanese resistance group would never lay down its arms.
The remarks come one day after UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon in a news conference in the Lebanese capital of Beirut commented on Hezbollah’s military might.
Nasrallah said he was pleased that Hezbollah’s growing military capabilities had been noticed by Ban.
Israel’s 30,000-strong Jewish military suffered its first military humiliation at the hands of Hizbullah fighters in Summer 2006.
