Hizbullah Secretary General Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah has welcomed dialogue between the Lebanese national opposition and the ruling bloc. Sayyed Nasrallah was speaking through a large screen during the opening of an agricultural fair in Beirut`s southern suburb of Rweis organized by Jihad al-Bina`a on Thursday night.

His eminence expressed hope that negotiations between rival Lebanese leaders General Michel Aoun and MP Saad Hariri in Paris over the election of a new president would lead to a breakthrough in the ongoing stalemate. Sayyed Nasrallah said that he was "happy with any meeting between opposition officials and the government". Amid lack of agreement on a consensus candidate, a session of Lebanon`s parliament to elect a new president has been twice postponed and is now scheduled to take place on November 12.

Sayyed Nasrallah also lashed out at the ruling bloc for failing to prevent the "Israeli" army warplanes` violation of the country`s sovereignty.
"It is a shame and suspicious as well that the ruling bloc that claims that it promotes Lebanese independence, remains silent in the face of these aerial violations," his eminence said.

Hizbullah Secretary General also stressed that the national resistance movement has grown stronger while "Israel" has weakened. His comments came ahead of a military exercise the "Israeli" occupation regime has scheduled this week in the north near the Lebanese border. The exercise is slated to be the largest "Israeli" military maneuver since the "Israeli" aggression against Lebanon last year.

"The resistance today is stronger than before and "Israel" is weaker,`` his eminence said.
"We don`t want war with anyone, but at the same time, we will not allow anyone to attack our villages, people and country,`` he added.
Sayyed Nasrallah warned that no one will be allowed "to stain Lebanon`s lands, which will not be a land for "Israeli" occupation or American military bases``.

He was referring to a report by Lebanese daily As-Safir newspaper last month that said Washington was proposing a treaty with Lebanon that would make it a strategic partner and lead to the creation of US bases in the country.

Sayyed Nasrallah also referred to the US resolution that has listed `Jihad al-Bena`a` as a terrorist group, saying that the group will continue its tasks and responsibilities as to help people and build their homes which were destroyed during the "Israeli" aggression last year. He also vowed that no matter what others refer to the group as `terrorist` or `a government inside a government`; Hizbullah would continue working hard since these accusations boost its determination and persistence.
