Abbas expresses opposition to “armed resistance” in meeting with journalists in Lebanon

“President Mahmoud Abbas met with approximately 100 of Lebanon’s leading journalists… The President was spontaneously bombarded with questions regarding weapons in the refugee camps, the armed resistance and his reasons for not meeting [Secretary-General of Hezbollah] Hassan Nasrallah… The President said that he is willing to meet all Lebanese leaders and that no meeting had been arranged with Hassan Nasrallah. He added that he declares he does not want an armed resistance, so that Israel will not use it [as an excuse] to demolish Palestinian cities.”
