In Iran, Berri Says Lebanon a ‘Thorn in Israel’s Side’

Speaker Nabih Berri arrived Monday in Tehran to take part in the 6th conference for supporting the Palestinian people that will kick off Tuesday.

“We cannot forget that Israel has greedy ambitions, not only in the region but also especially in Lebanon, which is a thorn in its side,” Berri said upon his arrival.

“We do not forget the Islamic Republic of Iran’s support for the resistance in Lebanon, which secured that victory and, God willing, permanent victory,” he added.

He also noted that “from the era of (Islamic revolution founder) Imam (Ruhollah) Khomeini until the era of the leader Imam (Ali) Khamenei, all of the Islamic republic’s initiatives have always been aimed at Palestine.”
