Velayati, Nasrallah discuss issues of mutual interest


The meeting was focused on issues related to the World of Islam, Lebanon and extremism.

The Iranian Supreme Leader’s Advisor for International Affairs Ali Akbar Velayati and Secretary General of Lebanon’s Hezbollah Hassan Nasrallah met in Beirut and discussed important international, regional and bilateral issues.

The meeting on Monday evening focused on issues related to the World of Islam, Lebanon and extremism.

Velayati called for further unity and cooperation between Muslim nations in the fight against extremism and Takfiri groups.

Certain states inside and outside the region are supporting Takfiri groups and extremists in order to divide the Islamic countries, said Velayati.

The enemies, he noted, will not be able to make their sinister dreams about the region come true.

Velayati arrived in the Lebanese capital on Monday morning.

He held separate meetings with Lebanese Prime Minister Tammam Salam, Parliament Speaker Nabih Berri and leader of the Lebanese Free Patriotic Movement General Michel Aoun.

Velayati also attended a press briefing and answered the reporters’ questions about various international issues as well as strategic ties between Tehran and Beirut.

He also attended the closing ceremony of an international conference on Palestine and delivered a speech.
