Iran key to strengthening anti-Zionist resistance: Lebanese Parl. speaker
Lebanese Parliament Speaker Nabih Berri says the Islamic Republic is key to bolstering the resistance front against Zionism.
Iran is important in maintaining and strengthening the anti-Zionist resistance front, Berri said during a meeting with Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister for Arab and African Affairs Hossein Amir-Abdollahian in the Lebanese capital, Beirut, on Thursday.
The extensive presence of people to back the Islamic establishment in Iran is a strategic element in denting a blow to the plots of the enemies, he added.
For his part, Amir-Abdollahian stressed the importance of exploiting all the existing parliamentary and popular capacities of Iran and Lebanon to boost the trend of Islamic Awakening in the region, describing the move as a significant factor to consolidate the achievements of the resistance front.
He also stressed the necessity of maintaining vigilance in the face of Zionist plots in the region, and emphasized Iran’s stance of supporting popular demands in Syria, Yemen, and Bahrain.
The meeting in Beirut was also attended by Iranian Ambassador to Lebanon Ghazanfar Roknabadi.
