New Iranian Ambassador Presents Credentials to Lebanese President

IRNA – Lebanese President Michel Suleiman on Thursday hailed efforts to promote Iran-Lebanon cooperation, hoping that the two countries would maintain bilateral relations at the highest level.

In a meeting with Iran’s new ambassador to Lebanon, Mohammad Fathali, he described the current regional and Lebanon’s situation as very sensitive.

Referring to Iran’s status in the region, President Suleiman said that Iran has always taken steps to promote unity among the nations and regional states.

Fathali submitted his credentials to President Suleiman on the second day of his arrival in Beirut.

On the first day, Wednesday, the envoy met Lebanese Foreign Minister Jebran Bassil and presented a copy of his credentials to him.

Fathali pointed to deep and historic ties between the two nations of Iran and Lebanon, saying that what distinguishes Lebanon from other countries is peaceful co-existence among followers of different religions and ethnic groups.

Lebanon is home to various political groups, he said, noting, “Iran will endeavor to maintain regular ties with all Lebanese political groups and tribes,” he said.

During the meeting, the two officials also discussed regional and global developments, Lebanon’s situation as well as ways to develop cooperation between the two countries.
