Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif met Wednesday in Lebanon with Hezbollah terror chief Hassan Nasrallah, in which the two discussed how the nuke deal recently agreed upon between Iran and the United States and world powers creates an opportunity for Tehran’s regional allies to “face threats posed by the Zionist entity,” Hezbollah’s Al Manar media outlet reported.
Hezbollah (Party of Allah), which was created by the Iranian regime with the expressed purpose of turning Lebanon into a “graveyard for Jews,” according to Nasrallah, is classified by the United States as a terrorist organization. The jihadi group has been responsible for the deaths of hundreds of American serviceman over the past few decades, and has in the 21st century established substantial roots throughout Latin America.
“Once more, I call on Muslim countries in the region to respond positively to Iran’s invitation to dialogue and cooperation for guaranteeing the interests of regional states and nations,” Zarif said, pointing to “the Zionist entity, terrorism and extremism” as the foremost threats facing the Middle East, the report added.
“We value the major role played by the prime minister in providing security, fighting terrorism, and creating cooperation,” Zarif told a press conference after meeting with the Lebanese PM. Zarif added that he hoped for “more cooperation between the Lebanese and Iranian governments.”
Iran is the chief backer of the Syrian regime worldwide. The regime supported by Iran has ruled during a time in which hundreds-of-thousands of Syrians have been slaughtered over the past few years, most of whom by their own government, according to estimates.
Later in the day, Zarif arrived in Damascus and met with Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad, according to reports. The two are “expected to discuss a four-point proposal Iran wants to offer to the United Nations to end Syria’s civil war,” Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty reports.
The Iranian foreign minister will also travel to Pakistan, India, and Russia in the coming days.
