February 9, 2011 10:27

Hizbullah leader Hassan Nasrallah is "walking in the footsteps of his mentor," Iranian Grand Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, Egyptian Foreign Ministry spokesman Husam Zaki told the Saudi daily al-Watan on Wednesday.

The spokesman accused the two Shi'ite leaders of wanting "to ignite the region."

"Nasrallah does not have the right to accuse Egypt of being a follower of Israel and the US at a time when he works on shattering the unified front in Palestine and Lebanon to implement Iranian agendas," Zaki said.
