Velayati Meets Hariri, Says Iran ‘Keen’ on Lebanon’s Stability
Iran’s Supreme Leader Advisor to international affairs Ali Akbar Velayati on Friday met with Prime Minister Saad Hariri, stating that Iran protects Lebanon’s stability and government.
“Iran protects the stability of Lebanon and its government and welcomes its independence,” said Velayati from the Grand Serail where he met the Premier.
“We commend the recent victories of Lebanon against terrorism and we congratulate Lebanon, its people and PM Hariri,” he added.
“We wish Lebanon lasting success and the formation of a coalition government that will be a success for the Lebanese people,” he went on saying.
“Lebanon’s victory against terrorism is a victory for us all, as is the case in Syria. Terrorists are supported by the Zionists and the Americans, the victory of Iraq against the separatist movement is another aspect of these victories,” noted Velayati.
He concluded saying “these victories are a victory for the axis of resistance in the region and a victory for all of us.”
