Did Moscow ask Hezbollah to pressure Aoun?


The Russian embassy in Lebanon published a statement on its Twitter page, in which it stated: “In light of the rumors that have recently spread widely by some Lebanese media, about Moscow’s request to Hezbollah to put pressure on the President of the Lebanese Republic, General Michel Aoun and the Free Patriotic Movement to facilitate Government formation. “He added, “It is important for the Russian side to clarify the following: These rumors are devoid of health in form and content. The Russian Federation affirms its principles of non-interference in the internal affairs of sovereign states and a categorical rejection of foreign pressure and dictates policies.”

He pointed out that, “In this context, we quote Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, who he said during talks with the Hezbollah delegation in Moscow on March 15 of this year. The Lebanese should decide to solve this sovereignty issue (forming a government) on their own, and Moscow will respect it.” None of their options. “
