Jubair accuses Hezbollah, Iran of derailing presidential election

Saudi Foreign Minister, Adel Al Jubair, on Tuesday blamed Iran and Hezbollah as responsible for suspending the presidential elections in Lebanon.

Al Jubair's stance came Tuesday in the context of a joint press conference with France's Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Development, Jean-marc Ayrault.

The Saudi senior said, "Hezbollah works for Iran's interest, not Lebanon's. Hezbollah and Iran are suspending presidential elections. Both are responsible for the presidential vacancy."

Ayrault, for his part, said that he would visit Lebanon on July 11, 12, in an attempt to solve the presidential elections problem.

The French minister announced that the political course was the only choice to solve the crises in Syria, Yemen and Libya, adding that a meeting will be held in Washington on July 20, 21, in favor of the international coalition against Daesh.
