Fathali reiterates Iran’s support for ‘defiant people’

Amal Movement held a ceremony on Tuesday commemorating the 38th anniversary of the triumph of the Islamic revolution in Iran, attended by Ambassador of Iran Mohammed Fathali, who asserted that his country plans to maintain its support for Palestine, Syria, Lebanon, Yemen and Bahrain.

The event was attended by MP Ayoub Homeid and a host of partisan and religious figures.

The Ambassador said in a word that that under the wise leadership of Imam Seyed Ali Khamenei and President Hassan Rouhani, the Islamic Republic of Iran would remain the advocate of justice, dialogue and unity. He asserted that Iran continued to represent the "strategic depth" for the proud people facing "Zionist occupation and takfirist terrorism."

"[Iran] will continue to be the true supporter of defiant people...in Palestine, Syria and Lebanon," noted Fathali, without failing to add Bahrain and Yemen to the list of "wronged people."

Fathali lauded the Lebanese people and particularly Amal Movement, with its leader House Speaker Nabih Berri.
