Jumblat: The Enemy Seeks to Create Strife and Target Security and Stability in Lebanon

Progressive Socialist Party leader MP Walid Jumblat stated Tuesday that Israel seeks to create internal strife between Sunnis and Shiites in Lebanon, as well as target the country's security and stability.

The MP made his stand during a visit to the Iranian embassy in Lebanon where he met with Iran's Ambassador to Lebanon Ghazanfar Abadi.

The embassy issued a statement after the meeting in which it said that the two officials discussed local and regional developments and Iran's scientific, industrial, and technological achievements.

Jumblat praised Iran's position in supporting the Resistance in Lebanon and the Palestinian people.

He said: "My visit is aimed at clearing the dark clouds that have marred our relations with Iran as a result of a few problems," stressing his intention to open a new page of ties with the Islamic Republic "to bolster national and Islamic unity."
