BEIRUT - Hezbollah leader Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah said on Thursday he disagreed with the Lebanese prime minister's agreement to fund the country's share of the cost of a UN-backed court investigating the killing of statesman Rafik Hariri, but that his party and its allies would not act against it.

"We stress our firm rejection of the legality and constitutionality of funding the court or cooperating with it in any way, but we will not cause a problem in the country and we will serve the higher national interest," he said in televised address commemorating the Shi'ite Muslim of Ashoura.

The leader of the Shi'ite Muslim political party and guerrilla movement said the premier had "embarrassed himself" by moving to fund the international investigation of a 2005 car bomb that killed Hariri, in which the court has indicted four Hezbollah members.
