BEIRUT: The new Iranian Ambassador to Beirut Mohammad Fathali Wednesday hailed the Lebanese Army’s crackdown on radical terrorist groups.

“It was an opportunity to congratulate the prime minister on the great achievements recently of the Lebanese Army in confronting these radical takfiri terrorist groups that are undermining Lebanon’s security,” Fathali told reporters following talks with Prime Minister.

He said discussions with Salam at the Grand Serail in Downtown Beirut had focused on bilateral relations between the two countries in all areas.

“The prime minister holds a positive vision toward good relations between the brotherly countries,” Fathali said.

He condemned the latest deadly suicide car bombings that jolted Lebanon on Friday and Monday night, leaving two police officers killed and more than 50 people wounded.

From the Grand Serail, Fathali traveled to Rabieh for talks with Free Patriotic Movement leader Michel Aoun.
