Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah receives Iranian FM Amir-Abdollahian
Hezbollah Secretary-General Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah received the Iranian foreign minister, and the two discussed the latest Lebanese and regional developments.
Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian arrived Thursday in Beirut. His visit would see him meeting with several Lebanese officials.
Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah received the Iranian foreign minister and his accompanying delegation with Iranian ambassador Mohammad Jalal Firuznia present.
The meeting saw the parties discussing several issues, including the latest political developments in Lebanon and the region, said Hezbollah's statement Friday morning.
The Iranian foreign minister affirmed his country's support for Lebanon, adding that Tehran stands with Beirut on every level.
Iran "proved that it is a sincere ally that does not let its allies down despite hardship," said Hezbollah's Secretary-General, thanking the Islamic Republic. "There are high hopes that Lebanon will get out of this crisis through cooperation," the leader added.
Amir-Abdollahian's visit to Lebanon comes after a visit to Moscow, meeting with Lebanese President Michel Aoun and several other Lebanese officials.
Lebanon supports Iran's efforts to enhance its rapprochement with the countries of the region, especially dialogue-based rapprochement with Arab nations, Lebanese President Michel Aoun said while receiving the Iranian Foreign Minister at the presidential palace in Baabda.
"Such dialogue could bring together the points of view on certain issues," encouraged the Lebanese president.
"The Iranian companies are prepared to build two power plants in Lebanon within only 18 months," the Iranian Foreign Minister announced during a joint press conference with his Lebanese counterpart Abdullah Bou Habib.
Amir-Abdollahian also asserted that Tehran is ready to contribute to rebuilding the Beirut port, which was shaken by a devastating explosion that left hundreds of Lebanese dead.
