Hezbollah says Biden visit interferes in election
By BASSEM MROUE, Associated Press Writer
BEIRUT –reaffirmed strong American support for Lebanon’s government Friday as the deeply divided country prepares for crucial elections in two weeks that could see the pro-Western faction ousted by Iranian-backed and its allies.
Hezbollah has accused Washington of trying to influence the June 7 vote in favor of the pro-Western faction that dominates the government. The militant group said the visits by Biden and U.S. Secretary of a month ago raised “strong suspicion and amounted to a clear and detailed interference in Lebanon’s affairs.”
Biden is the highest-ranking U.S. official to visit Lebanon in more than 25 years. Pro-Iranian militants targeted Americans with bombings and kidnappings in the 1980s during the civil war, leading to a 12-year U.S. ban on citizens traveling to the country that was lifted in 1997.
With Biden’s visit following so closely after Clinton’s, the attention from‘s administration underscores concerns about a possible win by Hezbollah, which the U.S. considers a terrorist group.
“Lebanon has suffered terribly from war and we have a real opportunity now … for peace,” Biden said after talks with. “So I urge those who think about standing with the spoilers of peace not to miss this opportunity to walk away from the spoilers.”
