(IRNA) - Visiting Iranian Minister of Foreign Affairs Manouchehr Mottaki in a meeting with his Lebanese counterpart Fauzi Sallokh here on Monday reviewed the latest developments in the course of Zionist regime's all-out war against Lebanon.
Mottaki after the meeting condemned the land, sea, and air attacks of the occupying regime of Holy Qods against Lebanese civilians, asking for an immediate end to those criminal acts, reports Trend.
He also condemned the massacre of a large number of defenseless women and children in Qana and expressed sympathy with the Lebanese people, government, and national-Islamic resistance on the matter.
Mottaki emphasized that Iran's spiritual and political support for the Lebanese nation and government would continue as strongly as ever before, and asked the international community, as well as the major world countries not to remain silent towards the developments in Lebanon and the Israeli attacks.
The Lebanese Foreign Minister, too, after the meeting appreciated the selfless contributions of the Islamic Republic of Iran to his country and asked for an immediate end to Israeli attacks after announcing an unconditional cease fire.
Salloukh stressed, "Lebanon would no get engaged in any political negotiation prior to the establishment of a cease fire."
He once again repeated Lebanon's demand from the UN Security Council to condemn the brutal Qana massacre, to identify its full details, and to punish its Zionist creators.
Over 60 Lebanese civilians, mostly women and very young children, were martyred in the course of heavy Israeli bombardments of Qana on Sunday evening.
The Iranian Foreign Minister arrived in Lebanon through that country's northern land border with Syria and is scheduled to meet with the Lebanese President Emile Lahoud, Prime Minister Foad Signore and Parliament Speaker Nabih Berri.
Mottaki on Monday evening also met and conferred with the visiting French Foreign Minister Filippe Doust Blazy
