Nasrallah: Next week critical for prisoner exchange deal with Israel
Hizbullah leader, Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah, on Monday evening urged Israel to conclude the prisoner exchange deal with his movement.
Nasrallah said that next week will be critical to securing a deal with Israel on the exchange of prisoners. German mediators are set to report to Hizbullah on the outcome of talks on the matter with Israeli representatives.
According to Nasrallah, the fate of the prisoners rests solely in the hands of Israel. He added that he is unable to appraise the level of Israel's seriousness in relating to the potential deal, and that he is not confident Prime Minister Ariel Sharon is still interested in the successful conclusion of an agreement with Nasrallah.
