Progressive Socialist Party (PSP) leader, Walid Jumblatt, confirmed on Saturday that the sanctions imposed by the United States will not weaken Hezbollah, but the Lebanese state.
"This is not the first time that Hezbollah and the United States have faced each other. But this time, the sanctions against Iran and Hezbollah will lead to economic collapse," Jumblatt said.
He considered that "Greater Lebanon" has not ended yet, but Sykes-Picot has ended, stressing that the Taif Agreement is still valid, but it has not been implemented.
Commenting on the application of federalism in Lebanon, he said: "There are sterile scenes and intellectual cycles, but there is no fear. Federalism is between whom and who?"
On the other hand, the PSP leader disclosed that he would participate in the Baabda meeting next week.
Commenting on the recent speech of Hezbollah Secretary-General Hassan Nasrallah and the word "we will kill you," he said: "There is no direct impact of this word on me, but if he wants to kill the Americans, let him do so."
In response to a question about Nasrallah's invitation to the state to go to the eastern countries for help, he said: "If he [Nasrallah] wants to go to China, let us go to China if the Americans allow to build a power station, but the Iranian economic model is not useful."
Jumblatt concluded: "There is no restart button for the country. Nothing starts again. We talked about ways to find solutions to avoid collapse, and there are solutions."
