Hezbollah chief voices solidarity with Iran’s Zarif over US sanctions
Tehran (KNA) - The Secretary General of the Lebanese resistance movement Hezbollah, Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah, has expressed his support for Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif in the wake of sanctions imposed by the administration of US President Donald Trump on him.
“When the US administration announced sanctions against you and included you in the honor list, my brethren and I decided to send you a telegram expressing our solidarity and respect. However, I preferred to delay it until today, until August 14, when the resistance front in Lebanon defeated (the United States of) America and Israel in the 33-day war of summer 2006, with the full support of the Islamic Republic of Iran,” Nasrallah wrote in a letter addressed to the top Iranian diplomat on Wednesday.
He added, “In that unjust war and open act of aggression, the decision was American. The project was American… The Israeli military was used as an executive tool as they claimed it was the most powerful army in the region at the time.”
