TEHRAN, Nov 12_The secretary general of the Lebanese Hezbollah resistance movement says Americans are exploiting the ongoing mass protests in the Arab country to fulfill their own interests and advance their agenda, stressing that Washington has prevented Lebanon from standing on its feet.

Americans taking advantage of protests in Lebanon for own interests: NasrallahTEHRAN, Young Journalists Club(YJC)_"Americans are taking advantage of the demonstrations for their own interests,” Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah said in a televised speech broadcast live from the Lebanese capital city of Beirut as he addressed his supporters on Monday evening, adding that the United States ignores social realities in Lebanon, including poverty and unemployment, and only focuses on the continuation of protests.

The leader of the Lebanese resistance movement further noted that demonstrations in the country have made the Lebanese more united than ever in their fight against corruption, adding, "The ongoing protests in Lebanon prevent any political faction from protecting those involved in corruption crimes."

Stressing that there should be no discrimination in the fight against corruption, Nasrallah added that all Lebanese should take part in fight against corruption by cooperating with judiciary.

The Hezbollah leader emphasized that the campaign against corruption requires impartial and honest judiciary and mechanisms to restore the stolen money, adding, "Let the court start trying Hezbollah members, and I pledge to lift the impunity of the party’s ministers and members of the parliament."

He highlighted that Lebanon’s manufacturing sector is terribly suffering from inefficiency and lack of productivity, arguing that the United States is creating obstacles for the direct investment and smooth operation of Chinese firms in Lebanon.

Nasrallah also roundly dismissed latest remarks by US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo concerning Iran’s influence in Lebanon as “unfounded and absurd,” saying, “In American officials’ eyes, Iran’s influence in Lebanon means support for the resistance movement.”

Pompeo wrote on his Twitter page on November 5 that the people of Iraq and Lebanon have a right to free themselves of Iranian influence.
