Hezbollah Secretary General Hassan Nasrallah made a rare appearance in person to deliver a speech on November 13, 2013 in which he addressed a number of political and security issues in the region and in Lebanon. Nasrallah focused on negotiations over Iran's nuclear program, Israel, and Lebanon's inability to form a new government.
On the issue of Iran negotiations, Nasrallah stated that a potential deal between Iran and the West would make Hezbollah and its political allies stronger. He refuted the claim that he is worried about Iran abandoning Hezbollah as part of deal with the West. Curtailed Iranian support for Hezbollah would be a major blow to the militant organization that would significantly change the balance of power within Lebanon and in the region. Nasrallah stated, however, that he trusts his allies because they have never sold out the organization or conspired against it, emphasizing the unity of purpose shared by Iran, Syria, and Hezbollah.
Saudi Arabia and its allies, however, had good reason not to trust the United States, their strongest ally, according to Nasrallah. He implied that the United States had been an unreliable partner and unable to stand by its obligations. He cited the abandoned military strike on Syria as evidence that the Gulf states cannot count on the United States to stand by its declarations or its commitments to its regional allies.
The Secretary General warned that a regional war was the alternative to a deal with Iran. He urged Arab Gulf states and Israel to stop obstructing a deal because they will be the losers in any regional confrontation that results from failed negotiations. "Everyone must be worried," about a regional war said Nasrallah, "but others besides us must be more worried."
Nasrallah also warned that Israel is working to perpetuate the current state of division, strife, and conflict in the Middle East.
