Iran FM urges deepening of all-out relations with Lebanon

Tehran, IRNA - Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian has stressed Iran's determination to deepen cooperation with Lebanon on ke bilateral, regional, and international issues.

Amirabdollahian made the remarks in a meeting with caretaker Prime Minister of Lebanon Najib Mikati, in Davos, Switzerland, late on Tuesday.

He said that the stability and security of Lebanon affect the entire region, and the Islamic Republic of Iran has always supported peace and calm in Lebanon.

The top diplomat hailed the role played by the Lebanese government, people, and the resistance in supporting the Palestinian nation in their current struggle against the Israeli regime. 

Unfortunately, under the US support for the Zionist regime, the war against Gaza keeps going on and we are witnessing the killing of Palestinian citizens, women, and children and the genocide of Palestinians by the Zionist regime, said Amirabdollahian.

Referring to US plans for a change in the situation in Gaza after the war, the minister said that no one has the right to impose anything on the Palestinian nation.

The Palestinians themselves should decide on how to manage the affairs in Gaza and in the West Bank, he said.

Meanwhile, Mikati emphasized the importance of constructive relations between Lebanon and Iran.

The Lebanese PM also welcomed maintaining joint consultations with Iran.

He described the situation in Palestine and the region as worrying, saying that it is necessary to strengthen political efforts to end the war against Gaza.

During the meeting, the two sides stressed the continuation of consultations to force an end the Israeli regime's crimes against the Palestinians, and to open the aid corridors to Gaza and help establish peace and stability in the region.
