November 3, 2017

TEHRAN - Ali Akbar Velayati, a top advisor to the Leader of the Islamic Revolution, on Friday reiterated Tehran’s support for the Lebanese government and the country’s stability and independence.

During a meeting with Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri in Beirut, Velayati also described Iran-Lebanon relations as “very good”.

Velayati also praised Lebanon’s victories in fighting terrorism.

He said the victories of the resistance front belong to the entire region.

The resistance front refers to the alliance of the Lebanese Hezbollah, Palestinian freedom fighters, Syria, and Iran against terrorists, Israel and the United States.
 
“Terrorists are being supported by the Zionists and victory over them is victory over the U.S.-Israeli plots,” he said.

He also met separately with Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah.
