To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what assessment he has made of recent reports that the Secretary General of Hezbollah, Hassan Nasrallah, has stated that Hezbollah fighters are active in Syria.

The Hezbollah leadership openly acknowledge their involvement inside Syria. The UK unequivocally condemns these actions. The consequences of overspill of the Syria crisis to neighbouring countries like Lebanon has a seriously destabilising effect on the region as a whole. This is entirely contrary to the interests of Lebanon. It is vital that further contagion is avoided at all cost and a speedy resolution to the conflict is achieved as soon as possible.
