Iran congratulates Libya over revolution
Iranian Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi has extended congratulations to the Libyan people over the victory of their revolution, Press TV reported.
During a telephone conversation with the chairman of the National Transitional Council of Libya, Mustafa Abdul Jalil, Salehi congratulated the Libyan nation over the fall of fugitive Libyan ruler Muammar Gaddafi, according to a statement issued by the Iranian Foreign Ministry.
They also discussed the latest developments in Libya and called for closer ties in all areas.
Abdul Jalil thanked the Iranian nation and government for the humanitarian assistance they have sent to Libya.
The Islamic Republic of Iran has dispatched three shipments of humanitarian assistance to Libya.
Last week, Iranian Majlis (Parliament) Speaker Ali Larijani congratulated the Libyan people over the fall of the Libyan dictator.
"The heroic Libyan nation rose up against the oppressor leaders of their own volition and proved that in the era of the awakening of nations, there is no room for tyranny and that the demands of the people must be respected," Larijani said.
The Iranian Majlis speaker also warned the Libyan people to be on guard against foreign interference in the North African country.
Libyan revolutionary forces overran Gaddafi's Bab al-Aziziyah compound on August 23.
Political analysts say that the battle against the fugitive ruler and forces loyal to him is inching closer to a conclusion.
