TEHRAN (Tasnim) – A senior Iranian lawmaker described the Lebanese Hezbollah Resistance Movement as a key factor in regional peace and stability.
“Lebanon’s Hezbollah is among major factors in maintaining peace and sustainable security in the region,” Chairman of Iranian Parliament's National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Alaeddin Boroujerdi said in a meeting with Lebanon’s ambassador to Tehran.
The Iranian legislator also reaffirmed Tehran’s emphasis on “solidarity and integrity” in the Arab country.
Boroujerdi further warned of foreign plots against the Lebanese nation, and stated, “Given Lebanon’s regional significance, enemies of this country seek to disrupt Lebanon’s security and stability.”
Lebanon’s Ambassador to Tehran Fadi Hajj Ali, for his part, underscored the prominent role of Iran in ensuring sustainable peace and security across the region.
Iran's new President Hassan Rouhani had on August 7 in his first press conference announced that bolstering relations with neighbors and easing regional tensions set a top diplomatic priority for his administration.
“The next administration gives priority to relations with its neighbors and also the regional countries,” Rouhani said on Tuesday.
He also added that the new administration will make efforts to establish “tranquility and stability” in the region with the assistance of friendly countries.
