Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian said Thursday that Iran is ready to rebuild Beirut port and that Iranian firms can build two power plants in Lebanon within 18 months.
He stated in a joint press conference with his Lebanese counterpart Abdullah Bou Habib that “Iranian specialized companies are willing to build two power plants with a capacity of 1,000 megawatts in Beirut and the South within 18 months.”
He added that his country is “fully ready to rebuild Beirut port if the Lebanese side asks for that.”
Abdollahian voiced his remarks after meeting with President Michel Aoun, Speaker Nabih Berri and Prime Minister Najib Miqati, on his first visit to Lebanon since taking his post after Iran’s presidential elections this summer.
