BEIRUT, May 26 (Xinhua) -- Lebanon's Hezbollah leader on Tuesday expressed his rejection to any change to the mandate of the UN Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFL) in Lebanon, Al Noor radio channel reported.

"The Americans and Israelis have always wanted to make the UNIFIL operate in Lebanon without coordination and cooperation with the Lebanese army," Hassan Nasrallah said during an interview with Al Noor.

"We will not allow any violation of Lebanon's sovereignty," Nasrallah added.

The Israeli UN ambassador said earlier this month that Israel wants UN peacekeepers to have access to all sites, adding the UN Security Council must be immediately informed of any block of their freedom of movement. Enditem
