French President Emmanuel Macron can’t act like Lebanon’s ruler, says Hezbollah’s leader Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah

Two days after French President Emmanuel Macron reprimanded Lebanon’s leaders with some of the harshest rhetoric, saying that he felt betrayed and was “ashamed of” them for serving their own interests before that of their country, Hezbollah’s leader Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah on September 29 said that his Shiite movement welcomes French efforts to help Lebanon but would not allow that any government or French President Emmanuel Macron could act like the country’s ruler.

“Hezbollah is still committed to the French initiative but “based on respect” and a new approach would be needed,” said Nasrallah, adding further, “France is welcomed in Lebanon as a friend and ally, not as a guardian of our country.”

On September 26, Lebanon’s Prime Minister-designate, Mustapha Adib, after failing to line up a cabinet consisting of independent technocrats, quit dealing a blow to a French plan that aimed at rallying sectarian leaders to deal with the crisis going on in the country.
