Prime Minister Saad Hariri lashed out at Iranian President Hassan Rouhani stressing that the latter's comments about Lebanon were “unacceptable.”
“Rouhani's affirmation that no decision is made in Lebanon without Iran is unacceptable,” emphasized the PM replying to Rouhani's remarks in a Monday tweet.
“Lebanon is an independent Arab state that accepts no guardianship and refuses what undermines its dignity,” stated the PM.
On Monday, Rouhani said in a speech in Tehran that Iran's position in the Middle East had never been stronger.
He said: “The greatness of the nation of Iran in the region is more than at any other time. In Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, northern Africa, in the Persian Gulf region -- where can action be taken without Iran?" he asked.
