Rouhani: Zionists Take Advantage of Discord in Lebanon

President Hassan Rouhani in a meeting with Lebanese Parliament Speaker Nabih Berri here on Wednesday said Lebanese government and people could pass enemies' conspiracies, adding that the Zionists, undoubtedly, take advantage of sowing discord in Lebanon.

President Rouhani said that strengthening and consolidation of stability, development and unity in Lebanon makes Iranians pleased.

 The Zionists imagined that they were able to keep Daesh terrorists in the region for a long time.

In recent months, the real nature of some regional states were disclosed for the regional nations and the world, adding that in such hard situations in the region, we have to increase mutual consultations and cooperation to pass this route and overcome the problems, Rouhani added.

He called development of economic, trade, political, regional and international ties between Tehran and Beirut necessary, and added that the Iranian government and people will stand by the Lebanese people in the way of resistance against the Zionist regime's aggression.

Nowadays, Islamic states have more responsibilities for the Islamic problems than before and should increase their interactions.

'We are always hopeful for a better future in the region and we know that by unity, alliance and jihad we may pass hard times and achieve our goals,' President Rouhani said.

NabihBerri explained domestic situation in Lebanon and appreciated Iran's support for the resistance of people and Lebanese Hezbollah before the Zionist enemy.

Today, we witness unity and good consensus in Lebanon, Berri said, adding that Iran has had positive role in the settlement of crises in the regional countries.

Nabih Berri also called the US stance on holy Quds as tension-creating for the region.

Unity resolving regional problems, says Larijani

Meanwhile, Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani said on Wednesday that regional developments can be resolved through unity and wisdom of Muslim countries.

'Restoration of peace and stability are among our aspirations and we hope the existing problems will be resolved through political means,' he said.

The Lebanese parliament speaker, for his part, said parliaments can play more active role in resolving the current disputes and differences.

Misdeeds by some Arab countries are rooted in the US' wrong approaches, he underlined.

Officials at the Islamic countries should exercise rationality to prevent sowing the seed of discords among religious sects, the Lebanese parliament speaker said.

Berri also expressed the hope that the Muslim countries would resolve their disputes through political diplomacy and never witness that any Muslim to fire at his Muslim brother and shed his blood.
