(IRNA) - Iranian and Syrian high-ranking health officials discussed on Sunday ways to deliver aid to Lebanon.
Iran's Deputy Health Minister Seyed Moayyed Alavian met separately with Syrian Minister of Health Maher al-Husami and State Minister for Red Crescent Affairs Bashar al-Shaar and expressed Iran's readiness to send food and medical aid to Lebanon, reports Trend.
Alavian said the ongoing savage attacks of the Israeli regime of the occupied territories and destruction of their infrastructure were part of a pre-planned plot to massacre the oppressed people of Palestine.
Hailing the Syrian government and nation for welcoming Lebanese refugees, Alavian underlined that the Iranian government and nation will stand alongside the people of Syria and Lebanon as well as Palestine in these difficult times.
"We have come to Lebanon and Syria to help alleviate the pains and remove the problems of their people," he said, adding that the Israeli regime has no respect for morals and humanitarian principles.
Al-Husami, for his part, said that Damascus pays great attention to the plight of Lebanese refugees and is providing them with essential services.
"The Syrian government and nation will spare no effort at helping the people of Lebanon," he said.
Al-Husami further called for continued cooperation among regional countries in the creation of resistance movements to counter the warmongering policies of the criminal Israeli regime.
In another meeting, Syrian State Minister Bashar Al-Shaar said Iran and Syria shared the common goal of defending the rights of regional nations and crushing the plots of tyrants.
He said that Tehran-Syria cooperation would continue with the same determination toward achieving their goals in the future.
