Transcript English of Sayyed Nasrallah’s Speech 27 March 2015 ~ Yemen and Region
Sayyed Nasrallah: my speech will focus on latest dangerous developments in Yemen
Sayyed Nasrallah: We respect the other’s right to freely express his opinion on these events, and no one has the right to prevent us from expressing our opinion. We will go on with the dialogue with Future movement since it is considered a national interest.
We are not concerned with all events related to the STL (Special Tribunal for Lebanon), and what was said during its sessions has no legal value.
Iran has not interfered in the presidential elections in Lebanon, and will not do so. Tehran is not responsible for the current deadlock.
Saudi Arabia is hindering presidential elections in Lebanon. Saudi FM Saud al-Faisal he who is vetoing the election of the candidate who has the majority within the Christians in Lebanon.
Sayyed Nasrallah to Saudi Arabia: if the aim of the war on Yemen is to save the Yemeni people, then why did you abandon the Palestinian people for long decades? Latest developments in Yemen a new proof that Arab states have never considered Israel an enemy.
Saudi Arabia has opposed the revolution which had overthrown Hosni Mubarak. Why didn’t they form a coalition to strike Egypt?
Can you prove to scholars and people in our Muslim nation that the current events in Yemen represent a real danger to Saudi Arabia and Gulf states? Pretext that Yemen represents threat to Gulf states is baseless.
One of the biggest lies Saudi Arabia has been propagating is that Iran is occupying Yemen.
Saudi Arabia does not recognize the rights of the peoples, and this is the major problem in the Saudi mentality.
Where are the achievements of Saudi Arabia’s foreign policy since 30 years ago? Your failure is prompting the people of the region to resort to Iran.
When Israel had occupied Lebanon Iran supported us and gave us the experience of resistance
Sayyed Nasrallah to Saudi Arabia: you have abandoned the Palestinian cause. Iran is not holding sway over Palestinians and their decisions.
Sayyed Nasrallah to Saudi Arabia: what did you do for Iraq? You had funded the war waged by Saddam Hussein against Iran. You had also supported George Bush in his war on Iraq. When the Iraqi people resisted the US occupation you had supported al-Qaeda-linked groups and Takfiri militants, and ISIL is your latest crime. The Saudi intelligence was sending the booby-trapped cars and funding the suicide attacks on the Iraqi cities. You supported Saddam Hussein as he was committing genocide against Iraqi people.
Iran defended the Iraqi people in a war which was eradicating its existence
Sayyed Nasrallah to Saudi Arabia: you have sent the Takfiri monsters to Syria not to save the Syrian people, but to subdue Syria. However Syria will remain free and independent.
