Amirabdollahian clarified that he discussed with the Lebanese officials the cooperation between the two countries, especially in the gas and power fields, adding that the US pressures are main barrier hindering the process
The Iranian top diplomat noted that he understood, during his two meetings with Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah and Secretary General of the Islamic Jihad Movement of Palestine Ziyad Al-Nakhaleh, that the Resistance insists on changing the equation in a way that breaks the arrogance of the Israeli enemy.
Amirabdollahian added that he would visit Riyadh upon an invitation he received from his Saudi counterpart who, in turn, “would visit Tehran upon my invitation”.
The Iranian foreign minister visited the Lebanese southern town of Maroun Al-Ras, overlooking the border area with the occupied Palestinian territories.
The two members of the Loyalty to Resistance parliamentary bloc, Hasan Fadlallah and Hasan Ezeddine, in addition to a host of municipal and social figures welcomed the Iranian top diplomat.
Planting an olive tree in Iran’s Park in the town, Amirabdollahian reiterated the Iranian support to the Islamic Resistance in Lebanon.
“We are here in the border town of Maroun Al-Ras to announce again and loudly that we support the Resistance in Lebanon against the Zionist occupation,” Amirabdollahian said.
“The Islamic Resistance in Lebanon has proved that the Zionist entity does not understand but the rhetoric of power.”
The Middle East has started a stage of collaboration, the Iranian foreign minister said, adding that the future of the regional states is bright.
All the developments in the region will lead to the isolation and collapse of the Zionist entity, Amirabdollahian affirmed.
In turn, MP Hasan Fadlallah thanked the Iranian minister for his country’s renewed power offers to Lebanon, calling on the Lebanon authorities to respond positively to the Iranian initiatives.
