Hizbullah leader Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah on January 2 said that the opposition acquiring veto power in the next government was the only solution to the 13-month old political standoff in Lebanon, adding that he and his allies were fighting against US plans for this country rather than against the ruling March 14 Forces. He also accused the governing coalition obstructing all international initiatives to solve the crisis in Lebanon as they are refusing to accept all attempts to set the foundations for a true partnership.

Nasrallah said the opposition was working on countering US influence and designs in Lebanon because the US is aiming to bring about the permanent resettlement of Palestinian refugees in Lebanon so as to jeopardise the Palestinian cause and the right of Palestinians to return to their homeland. He made it clear that the opposition is seeking veto power in order to monitor the economy of the country and protect it against dubious deals.
