Hezbollah 'not a militia'

From JPost:

UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan met the Lebanese prime minister Friday and repeated his demand that all militias in Lebanon be disarmed, a clear reference to Hezbollah.

But Lebanese Prime Minister Najib Mikati told reporters after the meeting that he did not consider Hezbollah to be a militia.

"In our terminology Hezbollah is not a militia, it is a resistance and we believe there is a difference between resistance and militia."

Asked by a reporter if believed that meant that UN Security Council resolution 1559, which seeks the disarming of militias did not require Hezbollah to disarm, he said, "To a certain extent."

Oh brother...
