Iranian FM Mohammad Javad Zarif sent a cable to his Lebanese counterpart Jebran Bassil and another to Hizbullah chief Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah to congratulate them on the occasion of Liberation Day.
"This is a historical victory that was achieved as a result of cohesion between the Lebanese of all sects and political parties, and thanks to the efforts of the resistance's heroes,” Zarif said in the letter to Bassil.
He continued: “It is a turning point in Lebanon's modern history which promises more victories and achievements against the occupying Zionist entity.”
And in his letter to Nasrallah, the Iranian FM considered that this “historic saga will keep reminding people of the Lebanese and the fighters' sacrifices, especially of those who are keen on preserving the resistance."
Liberation Day, which is celebrated on May 25 of each year, commemorates the Israeli army’s withdrawal from south Lebanon in May 2000.
Nasrallah is scheduled to make a televised speech on Sunday 25 at 5:00 p.m. for the occasion.
