Lebanese Leader Says Will Resign Unless Hizballah Withdraws From Conflicts

The Iranian-backed Hizballah, which forms part of the Lebanese government, is fighting alongside Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in Syria and in Iraq against Islamic State militants.

Leading Lebanese politician Walid Jumblatt called on Saudi Arabia to have a dialogue with Iran in order to reduce regional tensions Saturday.

Hariri made his threat in an interview with the French broadcaster CNews.

But Ghassemi denied that Iran has "any military connection with Yemen", although Tehran says it supports the Huthis politically and regularly denounces Saudi Arabia for allegedly bombing civilians. Hariri told CNews he wanted to send a "positive shock" through Lebanon through his resignation, and denied that Saudi officials forced him to resign.

Saudi Arabia has accused Hezbollah of declaring war on the kingdom by supporting Yemen's Houthi rebels, who fired a ballistic missile the night of Hariri's resignation that was intercepted near Riyadh.

President Michel Aoun held talks on Monday with other Lebanese political leaders over the future of Hariri's government but gave no sign whether they discussed his demand that the country steer clear of regional turmoil.

"Lebanon can not resolve a question like Hizballah, which is in Syria, Iraq, everywhere because of Iran", Hariri told French TV.

But he said he was ready to stay on as prime minister if Hizballah accepted to stick by the state policy of staying out of regional conflicts.

Iran's Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Qassemi has rejected the USA accusation that Tehran violated the UN Security Council resolutions on Yemen.

"They know we have to remain neutral in the region".

A political standoff in Lebanon continues to intensify, with the country's Prime Minister yet to decide whether he will finally resign or not.

"In early November, saudi Arabia has accused Iran of" aggression direct" against its territory after the rebels yemeni houthis (shiites) had fired a missile from long range on the saudi arabian authorities say they have neutralized near the worldwide airport of Riyadh.
