| Future parliamentary bloc flatly rejected on Tuesday what it called "the intervention" of Hezbollah in Saudi domestic affairs, after the party has sternly condemned the authorities in Saudi Arabia to execute Shiite cleric Sheikh Nimr al-Nimr.
"These stances are flagrant and rejected intervention in the affairs of a brotherly country that carries for Lebanon all well and support during crisis," the bloc said in a statement issued following its weekly meeting under the chairmanship of MP Fouad Siniora.
"National duty entails to keep Lebanon and its people away from involvement in further problems, especially after Hezbollah has implicated Lebanon and the Lebanese in the war in Syria, in service for Iran, and in defense of an unjust regime that is killing its people," lawmaker Mohammad Hajjar continued, as reading the bloc's statement.
The bloc went on to recall the world's offers to interfere to curb tensions in the severe ties between Iran and the Arab countries. "These attempts are still failing due to Iran's intransigence."
Furthermore, the bloc rebuffed fresh statements by Hezbollah's MP Mohammad Raad, who expressed his party's rejection of any settlement pertaining to the election of a new president of the Lebanese republic.
Separately, the bloc condemned the fresh Israeli shelling on villages in southern Lebanon, highlighting the necessity to respect the international resolutions.
With the advent of the new year, the bloc hoped a new president would be elected.
Meanwhile, Interior Minister, Nohad Mashnouk, on Tuesday said that the regional situation has become worse than anyone ever thought it would be.
"Lebanon's regional cover began to fade," Mashnouk said during his meeting with the Maronite bishop of Beirut Boulos Matar in Ashrafieh, calling on the Lebanese political forces to act for the benefit of the country against surrounding threats.
