A senior Hizbullah official says he welcomes a new American and European approach toward the Lebanese guerrilla group. Hizbullah deputy leader Sheik Naim Kassem said his group expected new language by the West in dealing with the Iranian-backed Shi'ite Muslim group which calls for Israel's destruction. Kassem's remarks Saturday came a day after Hizbullah officials said they would welcome public talks with Britain. Britain's Foreign Office announced Thursday that it has contacted Hizbullah's political wing in an attempt to reach out to its legislators. It said its ultimate aim is to encourage the group to abandon violence and play a constructive political role in the deeply divided country.
