Iranian Shoura Council Speaker Ali Larijani on Monday said in a press conference held at the Iranian Embassy in Beirut that Lebanon was undergoing a sensitive stage and confirmed that Iran is ready to cooperate with the new government.
"We hope that the new government headed by Hassan Diab will be able to overcome all difficulties and we are fully prepared to cooperate with the Lebanese government in all sectors," Larijani said.
"Our support to the Resistance is no secret, and today we have discussed all the areas of support for Lebanon during meetings with Lebanese officials, industrialists, economists, and agriculturalists," the Iranian official said.
He dismissed the assassination of Quds Force Commander, Qassem Soleimani, a terrorist crime. "It is a cowardly and reprehensible operation, and the method indicates the weakness of the United States, which has not been able to achieve its goals in any other way."
"The US should be aware that we have become more determined to achieve our goals; mass rallies in Iran have confirmed their support for the Islamic regime," he added.
