Iran and Lebanon Pledge to Fight Israel Together
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad met with Lebanese Defense Minister Fayez Ghosn last week to discuss the two nations’ common goal of confronting the west and Israel.
The Iranian president told Ghosn to “resist the plots” of “domination-seeking powers,” the Associated Press reported. Ghosn also said that, “Lebanon will never forget that Iran stood by them in great difficulties” and warned Israel to consider Iran’s reaction before taking any act of aggression against any country in the region.
Iran’s defense minister Gen. Ahmad Vahid also partook in the visit. He said, “Strengthening [the] Lebanese army is among [the] strategic policies of Iran.”
