President reaffirms non-interference in Lebanon affairs
President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Tuesday reaffirmed non-interference
of Iran in Lebanese national affairs and called for unity and success
Responding to a question on an interview of Ali Larijani, Secretary of
Supreme National Security Council, with Paris-based daily, Le Figaro,
on resolving crisis in Lebanon and the future of Hezbollah resistance
movement of Lebanon, Ahmadinejad noted that the issues of Lebanon and
Hezbollah are their own, and Iran never interferes in their affairs.
"We have always emphasized the need for solidarity and national
sovereignty of Lebanon, supported their efforts to safeguard
independence and dignity of the nation, and extend spiritual support
for all friends, who make efforts to materialize the goal," he added.
Pointing to the fact that the current events in Lebanon are harmful
for the nation and the entire nations in the region, he said, "I
called on regional countries to be more vigilant on the conspiracies
of the foes, who sow discord in Lebanon."
"We should help Lebanese people decide on their own fate, and certain
countries should know that they will never be able to impose their
will on the nation."
Stressing the fact that Iran is a friendly and brotherly country for
regional nations, the president noted that Iranians are supporter of
dignity, highness, security and interests of the regional countries,
and repeatedly showed its goodwill in practice.
