sheikh-naim-qaseemSheikh Naeem Qassem, Deputy Hezbollah’s leader Syed Hasan Nasrallah said that Lebanon has started a race against the clock for a settlement to be reached before the release of an indictment into the assassination of former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik Hariri.

“The post-indictment phase is completely different from the pre-indictment phase,” Qassem warned during an interview with the Lebanese newspaper Al-Balad. “All options are conceivable.”
Qassem said the STL indictment would be issued “very soon” and he hoped that mediation efforts led by Saudi Arabia and Syria would “materialize in the near future.”

“If we don’t take advantage of the opportunities currently made available to us we will face a new scenario,” he added, without elaborating.

Qassem said Hariri’s son, Prime Minister Saad Hariri has a special responsibility in this regards and knows what is required of him to put an end to accusations against Hezbollah. “Hezbollah is not asking Prime Minister Hariri to talk about this issue but to taken action with the concerned parties ”

Qassem said a meeting between Hariri and Nasrallah could take place “when appropriate, beneficial and essential topics of discussion are found.”

“Afterward it will only take a phone call or a couple of hours to set up a meeting,” he said.

Asked to comment about Hariri’s visit to Iran he said: “We will know if this will reflect positively on the Lebanese situation if a solution is found for the current impasse . In reference to a compromise solution before the STL indictment is issued .

Saudi Ambassador to Lebanon Ali Awadh Assiri denied last Friday the reports claiming that the Syrian-Saudi efforts aimed at defusing tensions in Lebanon have reached a dead end .

“Contacts, although unofficial, are still ongoing through all means,” Assiri stressed in an interview with NBN television.

Assiri said that the priorities of Saudi King Abdullah are “Lebanon’s security and stability.”

“The situation is heading towards a major breakthrough and we will see the Lebanese closing ranks,” the Saudi envoy reassured everyone that the solution must be Lebanese.

“Lebanese officials themselves must take steps towards fending off civil strife, which only the enemy of Lebanon (Israel) hopes to see happening,” the Saudi diplomat added.

Tension escalated in Lebanon following reports that the Special Tribunal for Lebanon will soon issue its indictment into the 2005 assassination of Lebanon’s former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri. Last July, the Hezbollah chief Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah said that the tribunal is “an Israeli project” that will indict Hezbollah members. Nasrallah accused Israel of being behind Hariri’s assassination
