Lebanon's prime minister said his country is keen on enhancing cooperation with Iran. Tammam Salam made the comments in a meeting with Iran’s Ambassador to Lebanon Mohammad Fat-hali. Ways to boost bilateral ties and the latest developments in Lebanon and the region were among the issues discussed in the meeting held in Beirut on Wednesday. Commenting on the recent terrorist attacks in his country, the Lebanese prime minister said terrorists seek to undermine the security and stability of Lebanon. He also called on all Lebanese political parties to cooperate to counter such terrorist acts. In the latest spate of violence, a car bombing hit a southern neighborhood in Beirut killing a security officer and wounding at least 20 people on Tuesday. This came less than a week after a bomb blast rocked a Lebanese police checkpoint on the Beirut-Damascus highway, killing one police officer and wounding 32 others. Meanwhile, the Iranian envoy deplored the recent terrorist attacks in Lebanon and extended sympathy to the families of the victims. Fat-hali also described Israel as “the main enemy of the Muslim world,” and said the current turmoil in the region is an attempt by enemies to “create sedition among Muslims” and divert attention from Israeli crimes. He referred to the amicable ties between Iran and Lebanon and called for the implementation of several memoranda of understanding already signed between the two countries.
