Iran’s Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian who is visiting Lebanon to hold talks with Lebanese politicians, met with Nasrallah on Saturday and the two sides discussed various issues, including recent developments in the region such as the Gaza war, southern Lebanon and other resistance groups.
On Friday, the
Iranian foreign minister arrived in Beirut, which is the first leg of his
regional tour. The top diplomat is scheduled to hold discussions with senior
Lebanese officials on complete cessation of Israeli criminal war on Gaza, the
removal of the siege of the strip and the issue of governance of the besieged
area in the post-war era.
The FM also
held talks with resistance leaders such as Islamic Jihad Secretary General
Ziyad Nakhalah, Hamas representative in Lebanon Osama Hamdan, and deputy
secretary-general of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) Jamil
Mazhar in Beirut.
resistance officials emphasized that as a result of steadfastness by the
Palestinians, signs of victory of the Palestinian people are emerging, and that
the Israeli enemy is suffering from internal and international pressures and
the regime could achieve none of its announced objectives in the war on Gaza.
Palestinian resistance leaders also extended congratulations on the 45th
victory anniversary of the Islamic Revolution of Iran and expressed gratitude
for Tehran’s support during the four-month-long Israeli aggression.
minister highlighted victories of the Palestinian resistance fighters on the
ground, noting that one of the achievements of Operation Al-Aqsa Storm is that
the issue of Palestine has once more turned into the top priority of the
Islamic world and the international community, and that the resistance movement
has consolidated its undeniable position in Palestine and regional equations.
It is worth
mentioning that this is Amirabdollahian’s third visit to Lebanon since the
onset of Israeli regime’s aggression against Gaza.
