Zarif Meets Nasrallah, Says Iran Ready to Help in All Files

W300

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif held talks Monday with Hizbullah chief Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah during an official visit to Lebanon.

The meeting was held in the presence of Iranian Ambassador to Lebanon Mohammad-Jalal Firouznia and the delegation accompanying Zarif.

“Sayyed Nasrallah thanked the Islamic Republic of Iran and its officials and people for what it has offered to Lebanon, Palestine and the region's resistance movements and peoples in the confrontation against Zionist aggression and takfiri terrorism,” Hizbullah's al-Manar TV said.

He also stressed that “this assistance has led to victories in many arenas and battlefields,” hoping Tehran will maintain its support “despite all the conspiracies and pressures it is facing as a result of that.”

Zarif for his part underlined “the Islamic republic's firm stance that supports Lebanon and its state, people and resistance,” expressing its readiness to “offer all forms of help and cooperation in the various files that are on the table.”

Nasrallah had announced Wednesday that he is willing to ask Iran to provide the Lebanese Army with weapons and air defense systems, while noting that Tehran can “easily” solve Lebanon's chronic electricity problem.

“Will the Lebanese government dare to accept the Iranian proposals? Why should Lebanon remain afraid to cooperate with Iran?” Nasrallah said in a televised address marking the 40th anniversary of Iran's Islamic revolution.

Nasrallah also noted that Iran can make a “huge transformation” in Lebanon's pharmaceutical industry that would “help us slash the medical bill of the state and citizens.”

“Sayyed Nasrallah thanked the Islamic Republic of Iran and its officials and people for what it has offered to Lebanon, Palestine" Apart from drugs, death, car bombs, terrorism, setting up Kizballah's infrastructure, slowing the formation of government and illegal weapons outside the hands of the state what has Iran offered Lebanon in the past?????
Lets see I could have missed something here such as they built all the new highways outside of el Shiya7 or a Hospital in Antellias or maybe a soccer field or two in Alley?

Zulu November, these Lebanese leaders (and most middle eastern ones too) have a tribal mentality. That’s why they had an Ottoman boot on their necks for four centuries and after that a Syrian one. Unless we evolve as a human species, nothing will change.
We have better chances at winning the US mega millions lottery without playing than evolving for fairly obvious reasons.

Lol now you had me do a double take at this goats demeanor SOS, notice his size 6.5 shoes? Or his pot belly all earned the hard way. Last either one took a shower is probably a year ago. It must be pretty odoriferous to say the least in that sewer hole.

Had I not seen the beard, I would have thought he is 36 weeks pregnant. His health adviser should inform him that his cancer feeds on these betit four. I did notice his small feet as well. LoL and as you know, little feet go hand in hand with a little D... (;
