Hizbullah Secretary General Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah on Friday announced that "the party is working for consensus in Beirut as to the municipal elections, and up till now, it hasn't taken a final decision as to engaging in Beirut's electoral battle."
Sayyed Nasrallah added that Hizbullah will take the appropriate decision after concluding the exerted efforts to achieve consensus.
During a ceremony to honor the members of the Islamic Resistance Support Organization, his eminence called for "keeping the resistance away from the municipal elections," stressing that "those who don't join the Hizbullah-AMAL consensus electoral lists are not against the resistance and they have the right to run for municipal elections."
Concerning the "Israeli" threats and US-"Israeli" claims about Scud missiles, the Hizbullah Secretary General said that "the Israeli and U.S. remarks about transferring Scud missiles to Hizbullah aim at pressuring the resistance forces and the defiance nations and at waging an intimidation campaign, not more," ruling out "the eruption of a war in the region in the current period because there are no political objectives to be achieved (by Israel) through war."
Sayyed Nasrallah stressed that the resistance party "has the right to possess any weapon, but its policy implies that it abstains from denying or confirming any information about the type of weapons it has; and if someone announced that Hizbullah has nuclear weapons, Hizbullah would not deny that."
