Beirut: Hassan Nasrallah, the head of Lebanon's Shiite Hezbollah movement, said on Sunday the previous day's resignation of the country's premier Saad Hariri had been "imposed" by Saudi Arabia.

"It is clear that the resignation was a Saudi decision that was imposed on prime minister Hariri. It was not his intention, not his wish and not his decision" to quit, Nasrallah said in a televised address.
