Envoy: US unable to stop Iran oil exports

Beirut, May 1, IRNA – Iran's Ambassador to Lebanon Mohammad Jalal Firouznia stressed the fact that the United States will not be able to stop Iran oil exports.

Speaking in his meetings with Lebanese officials in Sidon, Firouznia said the Islamic Republic of Iran will overcome this phase of sanctions with more power and zeal.

Regarding US hostile policies against Iran, he said like the past, the US will not be able to achieve its goals.

He added that Iran will continue supporting resistance and will defeat the cruel and aggressive policies adopted by the US and the Zionist regime of Israel in the region.

During his visit to Sidon, the Ambassador held talks with prominent Lebanese Shia cleric Sheikh Afif al-Nabulsi, Lebanese Members of Parliament Osama Saad, Sheikh Maher Hammoud, Chairman of the International Union of Resistance Scholars in Lebanon, Mufti of Sidon Sheikh Mohammad al-Asiran and some other scholars.

In addition to issues related to Lebanon as well as the bilateral cooperation, Firouznia discussed regional issues especially Palestine and US hostile policies toward Iran and regional states with his Lebanese hosts.

Underlining Iran's principled policy to support Resistance in the region and also help Lebanon, Iranian envoy said Iran will support stability and security there.

Referring to US attempts to unveil the the so-called 'Deal of Century', Firouznia said Washington spared no efforts to put pressure on Iran, Axis of Resistance and regional countries in line with promoting its plots.

Describing Palestine as a priority for the Islamic world and the region, he said the only way to solve the problem is the liberation of the occupied territories and establishing independent Palestinian government in Holy Quds.

Meanwhile, the Lebanese scholars referred to Iran's significant role in stabilizing and safeguarding the region and appreciated its supports for Lebanon and the regional countries and also its role in curbing terrorism.

They also termed US idiotic policies, its support of the Israeli regime and undermining Palestinians' rights as the main factor for insecurity and problems in the region.

Lebanese officials emphasized continuation of resistance against these aggressive policies.
