Lebanese politician stresses Iran’s key role in supporting axis of resistance

TEHRAN (FNA)- Secretary-General of the Lebanese Arab Struggle Movement Faysal Dawood in a meeting with Iranian Ambassador to Beirut Qazanfar Roknabadi hailed Iran’s important and effective role in supporting the axis of resistance against enemies’ plots.

“The resistance against the usurper Zionist regime (of Israel) is the cause of our dignity, self-esteem and honor, and supporting this path which stretches from Iran, Iraq and Syria to Lebanon is the cause of our glory and pride,” Dawood said.

Dawood appreciated Iran’s all-out support for the axis of resistance, stressing that the Islamic Republic has played a key role in strengthening the axis.

Roknabadi and Dawood also discussed regional developments as well as issues of mutual interest during the meeting.

Last month, Roknabadi and Secretary-General of Lebanon’s Islamic Unification Movement Sheikh Bilal Shaaban in a meeting in Beirut conferred on the latest regional developments.

During the meeting in the Lebanese capital, Roknabadi and Sheikh Shaaban discussed the latest regional developments, reiterating the need for unity among Muslim Ummah and restoration of peace and tranquility in the region.

During the meeting, the Iranian ambassador to Beirut called for preserving solidarity and unity among all Muslim nations in a bid to foil the enemies’ plots.

The Lebanese politician, for his part, pointed to the current status of relations between Iran and Lebanon, and said, “Iran plays leading role in solving the regional problems.”

Sheikh Shaaban underlined that constructive interaction between Iran and Lebanon would improve the current situation in the region.

Iran and Lebanon enjoy cordial relations and have further expanded these ties in recent years.

The two sides have exchanged several delegations of high-ranking officials in the last three years.
