Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani sent his newly elected Lebanese counterpart Michel Aoun’s message on the occasion of the national holiday of Lebanon – the independence Day. This date was celebrated November 22.
«I am confident that under your leadership, in an atmosphere of friendship and cooperation with various political forces, Lebanon will achieve prosperity and ensure the security of its citizens,» writes the Iranian President.
Note that Aoun is considered an ally of Hizbullah, an Iranian satellite. But for the election he was forced to go into an Alliance with an ally of Saudi Arabia – Saad al-Hariri, appointing him to the post of Prime Minister.
Recently, the Lebanese President accepted the invitation to visit Saudi Arabia – the main geopolitical enemy of Iran. The invitation was delivered to him by the Governor of Mecca Prince Khaled al-Faisal, who is on a visit to Beirut.
