article description
It is argued that the recent Belle data, consistent with no activity in the spectrum of the B∗B+BB∗ pairs at the mass of the Zb(10650) resonance, imply that the part of the interaction between heavy mesons that depends on the total spin of the light quark and antiquark is strongly suppressed. In particular, this part appears to be significantly weaker than can be inferred from pion exchange. If confirmed by future more detailed data, the symmetry with respect to the light quark spins, in combination with the heavy quark spin symmetry, would imply existence of four additional IG=1- resonances at the thresholds for heavy meson-antimeson pairs.
