Secretary-General of Hezbollah resistance group Seyed Hassan Nasrallah in a meeting with Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister Hossein Amir Abdollahian appreciated Tehran for helping the regional states in fighting against terrorist groups and establishing security in the region.
“If the resistance forces had not sacrificed their lives in the fight against the Zionist regime and terrorism and if the martyred Iranian military advisors (in Iraq and Syria) had not extended their cooperation, there would have been no security left in the region,” Nasrallah said during the meeting in Beirut on Sunday.
He also praised Iran for its efforts to settle the crises in the region politically.
Nasrallah blasted certain states for sowing discord among Muslims, and underscored the necessity for the Muslim world to keep vigilant against the Zionist regime’s moves.
Iran has pioneered in helping the regional states’ fight against terrorism, specially Iraq and Syria, and has demanded the regional and world states to partner in the war on against terrorist groups.
In relevant remarks in April, Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei said Iran and Italy can cooperate in the war against terrorism and extremism.
Ayatollah Khamenei made the remarks in a meeting with Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi and his accompanying delegation in Tehran.
“A number of European countries used to support certain violent terrorist groups for some time and today the dangerous and overarching wave of terrorism has reached Europe too,” the Leader added.
Ayatollah Khamenei cited Washington’s financial and arms support for terrorist groups as an obstacle to the eradication of terrorism, adding, “There is authentic and accurate information about aid by the US for ISIL, and certain other terrorist groups. Even now that they have formed an anti-ISIL coalition certain American organs are helping ISIL in one way or other.”
The Leader criticized major propaganda apparatuses in the world for spreading anti-Islam sentiments under the pretext of “actions committed by certain wicked and terrorist” elements.
