Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that "no one can imagine that Hezbollah is linked to the assassination of Rafik Hariri," Lebanese daily al- Safir reported Monday.
In a conversation with reporters during his trip back to Turkey, Erdogan stated that "Hezbollah says it is Lebanon's spirit of resistance, and even uses the term 'al-Shahid al-Hariri.' No one can imagine it is linked to this thing. The organization even supports a Syrian-Saudi initiative to reduce tensions," he said. (Roee Nahmias)
