Head of the Strategic Research Center of Iran’s Expediency Council Ali Akbar Velayati underlined that the Islamic Republic has played a major role in making possible the recent victories of the anti-Israeli resistance front.
Speaking in a meeting in Beirut with a gathering of officials of Iranian institutions in Lebanon, Velayati pointed to the fortitude of the oppressed people of Palestine, Syria and Lebanon and said Iran’s “principled policy” is to support the Axis of Resistance.
If it were not for Iran’s support, the recent victories of the resistance front would definitely not have been achieved, he stressed.
The meeting was held in the Iranian embassy in the Lebanese capital with Ambassador Mohammad Fathali in attendance.
Velayati has made the trip to Beirut to meet with Lebanese officials and hold talks on issues of mutual interest.
The Iranian adviser is accompanied by Iran’s Deputy Foreign Minister for Arab and African Affairs Hossein Amir Abdollahian in this trip.
Before arriving in Lebanon, he had visited the Syrian capital on Sunday and held talks with President Bashar al-Assad and a number of other senior officials of the Arab country. Tasnim reported.
