Ambassador of Iran meets Frangieh: We hope to witness swift birth of new government
Marada movement leader, Sleiman Frangieh, received on Fridat at his Bnashii residence the Iranian ambassador to Lebanon, Muhammad Jalal Firouznia, on top of a delegation. The meeting was attended by caretaker Minister of Public Works and Transportation, Youssef Fenianos, MP Tony Frangieh and Antoine Merheb, with talks touching on the latest developments.
The ambassador hoped "we will witness swift birth of the new Lebanese government. We are confident that, with the start of the new Lebanese government's work, we will all witness a new phase of further cooperation between Lebanon and Iran in various fields."
Responding to a question, the diplomat said "we believe that the Americans have chosen the wrong path. Since the Americans have solely withdrawn from the nuclear deal, we say that they chose the wrong path, and unfortunately they are continuing to follow this path."
"The sanctions imposed on the Islamic Republic of Iran are unjust and illegal, and they certainly will not reach any result. (...) There were many attempts to besiege Iran, but all those attempts have proven fruitless. We hope the United States would cease to adopt such wrongful and unfair policies against the countries and peoples of the region," he concluded.
