U.S. Ambassador Voices Concern over Hezbollah's Growing Role in New Government

U.S. Ambassador to Lebanon Elizabeth Richard on Tuesday voiced her country’s concern over Hezbollah's growing role in the new government, warning that party's actions are jeopardizing stability in Lebanon. "I was very frank with the Prime Minister about U.S. concern over the growing role in the cabinet of an organization that continues to maintain a militia that is not under the control of the government, that continues to make its own national security decisions," Richard said following a meeting with PM Saad Hariri at the Grand Serail.
