US intensifying econ. pressure on Lebanon to force normalization of ties with Israel: Analyst

The United States has intensified economic and political pressure on Lebanon to force the country into joining the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and a number of other Arab states in normalizing relations with the Israeli regime, says a political analyst.

In an interview with Press TV on Friday, Julia Kassem said the economic pressure applied by the US and its allies on Lebanon has been meant to force the Lebanese government into normalization with the Tel Aviv regime.

“The policies are designed to force an ouster of the pro-sovereign elements in Lebanon’s government, i.e. Hezbollah and its allies in parliament as well as President Michel Aoun, who is opposed to [Prime Minister-designate Saad] Hariri, the US, and their schemes, and install a complete administration compliant to US and Israeli demands of Lebanon,” Kassem said.

Over the past year, a number of Arab governments under the influence of the US have signed normalization deals with Israel.
