Hezbollah chief Sayyid Hassan Nasrallah on Friday accused Western powers and Gulf Arab states of seeking a war in Syria.

The party's Secretary-General also suggested that the United States and Gulf monarchies such as Qatar had been sending weapons to the opposition in Syria.

Nasrallah urged all parties in Syria to enter unconditional negotiations.

“Some Arab and Western states do not want a political solution for Syria as they want a war,” he said. “Lets go ahead, lets talk. They [the opposition] say it is forbidden, isn't this the reality now?”

Nasrallah urged Arabs across the region to unite in their opposition to American imperialism and condemned the continued Israeli suppression of the Palestinian people, highlighting the recent attacks on the Al-Aqsa mosque complex in Jerusalem.

"The people of the region, even if we have our differences...there is vigilance and a clear feeling toward Israeli and American projects."

“As long as America and the West adopt Israel which is insulting the Al-Aqsa mosque... America and Israel will be unacceptable.”
