Ahmadinejad urges regional awareness
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has called on regional countries to remain vigilant and put up a stiff resistance against enemies.
“The great awareness which has emerged in the resistance front of regional nations from Lebanon to Iran will defeat all enemies,” Ahmadinejad said in a meeting with senior officials of Lebanon’s Amal Movement in the Iranian capital, Tehran, on Sunday.
He further added that the Iranian and Lebanese nations shoulder a common and heavy responsibility against arrogant powers and enemies of humanity.
The Iranian chief executive said enemies seek to damage unity and security in Lebanon, adding that Lebanese resistance movements and officials will foil all conspiracies through wisdom and solidarity.
“Material systems and the global hegemony have reached a stalemate, and the world is in dire need of justice,” he noted.
President Ahmadinejad pointed to the 31st anniversary of Imam Moussa al-Sadr’s abduction and his role in fighting against Israel, stressing the importance of going ahead with ‘wise’ efforts to determine the cleric’s fate.
Imam Moussa al-Sadr was kidnapped during an official visit to Tripoli to meet with authorities from the government of Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi in August 1978.
In 2008, the Beirut government issued an arrest warrant for Gaddafi over Sadr’s disappearance.
Top officials of the Amal Movement said the Lebanese nation and groups will strongly resist against Israel and aggressive powers, and will not let them launch any aggression.
They called on Islamic countries to make further efforts to establish Imam Moussa al-Sadr’s fate.
