“The Islamic Republic of Iran supports and recognizes formation of new government in Lebanon”, Chairman of the Foreign Affairs Committee of Iran’s Parliament, Abbas Golroo said during a meeting with Lebanese Ambassador to Tehran Hassan Abbas.
“Iran- Lebanon relations in various economic, trade and political fields is a strong barrier against the plots of the Zionist regime in occupied Palestine,” Golroo added.
He underlined the need to boost Tehran-Beirut parliamentary cooperation.
Golroo hailed the role of Lebanese Parliament Speaker Nabih Berri in bolstering national unity.
Hassan Abbas, for his part, praised Iran’s support for the Lebanese nation and government.
“The full support of the Islamic Republic of Iran for the Lebanese nation, the government and the Axis of Resistance has strengthened the unity of this country against foreign aggression”, he explained.
The Lebanese envoy called for further relations with Iran in the fields of science and technology, economy as well as investment in the private sector.
In relevant remarks in late March, Iranian Parliament Speaker’s Special Aide for International Affairs Hossein Amir-Abdollahian said that the United States, France and Saudi Arabia intend to prevent the formation of a strong government in Lebanon.
