Hizbullah, Hariri Advisors Trade Accusations [about Israel war]

Hizbullah, Hariri Advisors Trade Accusations
MP Saad Hariri's spokesman has slammed as "phony" and "fabricated" Hizbullah charges that Hariri was seeking to disarm the Shiite group in exchange for an end to Israel's summer war on Lebanon.
Hani Hammoud, Hariri's press advisor, quickly replied to accusations made Wednesday by Hassan Khalil, the political consultant to Hizbullah leader Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah.
Khalil displayed at a press conference a letter he claimed was written by Wissam al-Hassan, head of the Internal Security Forces' intelligence section, who worked as a Hariri courier during the July-Aug war between Israel and Hizbullah.
In the unsigned, handwritten letter al-Hassan wrote that Hariri wanted an answer regarding the "pledge of honor" on the issue of Hizbullah weapons.
Hammoud hit back at Khalil's allegations, saying they were "full of forgery that aims at turning facts upside down."
He said that Khalil has misquoted the letter, accusing him of linking the content of two separate messages addressed to Nasrallah from Hariri.
Hammoud said that Hariri had sent a verbal message to Nasrallah informing him of a decision being taken by the U.N. Security Council regarding the deployment of international forces in Lebanon under Chapter 7.
It was in that verbal message that Hariri expressed fear that the U.N. move "is a dangerous issue," Hammoud said.
Hariri and Prime Minister Fouad Saniora were involved in diplomatic efforts at that time to prevent such a move, Hammoud said, adding that the main problem was the "lack of trust" in Hizbullah by the international community.
Hammoud said that Hariri was trying to separate the issue of Hizbullah's weapons from the implementation of U.N. Security Council resolution 1559 and put it back on the Lebanese internal dialogue track.
He clarified that Hariri wanted a "pledge of honor" from Nasrallah to go back to discussing the future of Hizbullah weapons.
