Hizbullah Secretary General Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah called on all politicians to adopt a calm language in dealing with the political situation in Lebanon.

Speaking at a religious ceremony, Sayyed Nasrallah stressed the necessity to resolve all disputes within the proper institutions in order to launch the dialogue mechanism that would pave the way to handle all outstanding issues and current crises.

"Calmness in the Lebanese national scene is a national interest, it's not the interest of any specific party or side or group," Sayyed Nasrallah said, noting that only then national dialogue could succeed in handling all topics, including the defense strategy as well as finance and economic issues, political reform or any other outstanding issues.

The Resistance leader stressed that the general calm in the country would help the national-unity government to become an acting government, a government able to deal with crises and conflicts. However, his eminence pointed out that if the tone was tense, then the result would be obstructing the dialogue as well as the government work and increasing tensions. "If the aim was to further one sides' electoral gains, then it has to be postponed," Sayyed Nasrallah emphasized.

His eminence also found strange and astonishing the reactions expressed by some parties over agreements reached by other parties. "The convergence of usually different Muslim or Christian or Muslim and Christian groups should be, in principle, a source of happiness and comfort for Lebanon since it helps us prove to the whole world that there is still a large space for dialogue and accepting the other and it shows readiness for cooperation between the Lebanese citizens," his eminence stressed, rejecting all attempts to make use of such agreements to highlight differences.

Sayyed Nasrallah called on all Islamic communities in Lebanon to "spread the spirit of dialogue, cooperation and hope," affirming that there are a lot of common points between Lebanese. "Keeping Lebanon out of danger requires calmness," his eminence concluded.
