Larijani praises Hezbollah leader's record

TEHRAN July 18 (MNA) –- Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani on Thursday praised Hezbollah leader’s “diligence” and said “Islam is proud of him”.

In a telephone conversation with Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah, Larijani added the genius movements by Nasrallah was a key factor which on the one hand helped establish peace in the region and on the other conveyed a clear message to the Israelis that they have come to a strategic dead end in the Middle East and have no way other than accepting the Palestinians as an independent nation.

 

The speaker went on to say that “Hezbollah showed that the United States’ diplomatic deception has come to an end and the regional nations are aware of its double standards.”

 

Nasrallah also appreciated Larijani’s call and “encouraging remarks” and said “your appraisal is of much value for us and we deem you as a partner in this victory. The Islamic Republic of Iran has always supported the Lebanese nation” and we are beholden to such supports. 

 

Israel on Wednesday returned five Lebanese prisoners and bodies of 199 others to Hezbollah after receiving the bodies of two Israeli soldiers in a prisoners swap between the two sides.

 

The released prisoners include Samir Kuntar, Khadher Zeidan, Mohammed Srour, Hussein Sulaiman and Maher Kurani.
