Sfeir: There's a Difference between Resistance and Army Weapons

Soaid: We Insist Hizbullah, Iranian Arms be Under Legitimate Control

March 14 Forces General Secretariat Fares Soaid said Sunday that Christian leaders within the coalition insist that "Hizbullah and Iranian weapons be under legitimate control."

In an interview with Future News TV, Soaid said it was "natural for March 14 forces to say outright 'No weapons outside the state control.'"

Sfeir: There's a Difference between Resistance and Army Weapons

Maronite Patriarch Nasrallah Sfeir said Sunday he does not oppose President Michel Suleiman's views on the resistance, but added that there is a difference between resistance and Lebanese army weapons.

"We do not object to remarks made by the President on the resistance during his speech on the eve of Independence Day," Sfeir told reporters at Beirut airport.

"I am not aware of the existence of a regular army and the resistance in one country at the same time," Sfeir pointed.

"There are rules and general assumptions common all over the world," Sfeir added before heading to the Vatican to take part in the preparation for the work of Middle East Churches.

"Lebanon is considered as a small country by Israel and cannot curb attacks" carried out by the Jewish state, he said.

"The resistance has so far tried, but I don't know if it had succeed or not," Sfeir added.

In response to a question on Israel's continued occupation of Shebaa Farms and Kfar Shouba Hills, Sfeir said: "This is a long standing conflict. We hope Lebanon would spread its sovereignty over all its territory."

"Israel, however, and those backing it, prevent Lebanon from achieving sovereignty," Sfeir believed
