Speaker Nabih Berri extended appreciation for Iran for “supporting Lebanon in facing the Israeli occupation and its solidarity with the Army, people and the Resistance,” the National News Agency reported on Tuesday.
Berri spoke from Tehran where he delivered a speech at the opening of the sixth conference in support of Palestine Intifada. He thanked “Iran for its support and help for Lebanon to face the Israeli occupation and its solidarity with the Army, people and Resistance to free all our land and oblige Israel to commit to (UN) Resolution 1701,” added NNA.
He stressed that none of the Israelis want a political solution, pointing out to the daily occupational practices. He called upon the world “to realize that starting war in the Middle East begins and ends in Palestine.”
Berri noted that moving the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to Al-Quds encourages Israel to take more pre-emptive decisions, calling for "Arab-Islamic preparedness to respond by closing (our) embassies in Washington,” in retaliation.
“It is due time for us to get together and achieve justice for the Palestinians."
Berri praised Iran's role in favor of Palestine and its people, pointing out that "they target Tehran just because it supports Palestine."
