On Tuesday, Hezbollah Secretary-General Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah called on people in the region not to bet on the United States because it is untrustworthy.
In a speech during the weekly sermon at the Sayyed Shuhada Complex in the southern suburb of Beirut (Dahiyeh), Sayyed Nasrallah emphasized that developments taking place east of the Euphrates River were considered a warning to the people of the region, responding to the decision of the United States to withdraw troops from northern Syria, leaving allied Kurds in the face of a proposed Turkish offensive in the area.
“It is a message for all the region’s people and all those who bet on the Americans. It’s time for region’s people to look for right choices and to know that betting on US brings nothing but failure,” Sayyed Nasrallah said.
His eminence, meanwhile, stressed the need for awareness and insight in a bid not to be deceived by the nation’s enemy.
“Peoples of this nations have to set their priorities… These are factors of victory, of course in addition to faith,” Sayyed Nasrallah went on saying.
“No one can bet on the US because of its disloyalty. American’s can’t be trusted at all. They break promises and abandon those who rely on them.”
In this context, Sayyed Nasrallah reminded of the stance announced by the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution in Iran Imam Sayyed Ali Khamenei regarding the relation with Washington.
“Imam Khamenei rejected all forms of negotiations with the US. Experience says that the US is not trustworthy for they (American) respect neither their deals nor their allies.”
