In a meeting with Lebanese Parliament Speaker Nabih Berri in Beirut on Friday, Roknabadi stated that support for the establishment of stability, security and national solidarity in regional countries, including in Lebanon, is an unchanging position in Iran’s foreign policy.
Berri, for his part, said that further unity and cooperation among regional states is essential and beneficial especially under the current circumstances.
The two officials also exchanged viewpoints on the latest developments in the Middle East and Lebanon during the meeting.
They also discussed parliamentary cooperation between Iran, Lebanon and other countries in the region particularly within the frameworks of the Asian Parliamentary Assembly (APA) and the Parliamentary Union of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC).
On March 12, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani underlined the need for the establishment of security in the Middle East, calling on Muslim nations to help reinforce regional peace and stability.
“As Muslim countries, we are duty-bound to make efforts to establish peace and stability in the region and we have always stressed that stability and tranquility in the region will be established by the regional countries,” Rouhani said.
