Dispatching fuel to Lebanon commercial move: Iran’s ambassador to Beirut

Dispatching fuel to Lebanon commercial move: Iran’s ambassador to Beirut

Tehran (ISNA) – Iranian ambassador to Beirut Mohammad Jalal Firouznia stressed that the Islamic Republic of Iran will continue to send fuel tankers to Lebanon for as long as it is necessary.

In an exclusive interview with ISNA on Tuesday, Firouznia referred to Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian’s recent visit to Lebanon and said, “The visit was taken place at important situations and was of particular importance”.

“Currently, Lebanon faces severe political, economic, and social crises and there have been difficult living conditions for the people of the country, especially during the last two years. By formation of a new government in Lebanon, there is hope that conditions will gradually improve in economic and political terms,” he added.

“The Islamic Republic of Iran has always announced that it will stand by Lebanese government and nation and we have tried in various ways to help them in difficult times. The latest example of our aid to Lebanon is dispatching fuel and exporting gasoline to help alleviate the country’s existing problems in this field,” the ambassador went on to say.

“Fortunately, Iran’s gasoline has arrived in Lebanon in recent weeks and has been distributed in hospitals and social service centers. Actually, it has been carried out   in a framework of a commercial move between Iran and Lebanese merchants,” Firouznia stated.

“These Iranian fuel tankers have not only been effective in resolving fuel problems of Lebanese people but also their impact and consequences have much been broader than a specific issue. These tankers have had tremendous effects in political and economic terms as well as in breaking US’ sanctions and siege against Lebanon and the Resistance,” he emphasized.
