Iran’s government spokesman says that psychological warfare mounted by the enemies has targeted social capitals.

Ali Rabiei, speaking to a video conference with officials at information centers of provinces across the country, called Wednesday for informing the public of efforts and measures taken by the government to solve people’s problems.

Referring to foreigners’ maximum pressure on Iran and global recession after the coronavirus pandemic, the spokesman said the country will breeze through the difficulties thanks to the blessings of national solidarity.

He further highlighted great achievements gained by the government despite the unjust sanctions and restrictions.

Better days are coming, the spokesman noted, elaborating on the government ‘s endeavors to control the economic conditions and return stability to the market.

At the meeting, the provincial officials exchanged views on basic questions about the present situation regarding sanctions and coronavirus pandemic which has killed over 546,000 since its outbreak in December 2019 worldwide.

 

 

Lebanon’s Hezbollah talks to the government about Iran fuel idea

The powerful Hezbollah group said on Tuesday it is in talks with the Lebanese government about the possibility of Iran supplying the country with refined oil products in exchange for Lebanese pounds.

Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah, leader of the Iran-backed Hezbollah, said a “calm discussion” was underway with the Beirut government over the idea that would ease the pressure on Beirut’s hard currency reserves.

Lebanon is suffering an acute financial crisis and hard currency liquidity crunch. The Lebanese pound has lost some 80% of its value since October, when the long-brewing crisis came to a head.

“We started a discussion…to see where this option can go,” Nasrallah said in a televised speech. “This track is moving…What’s the result going to be? I don’t know. But we have to try,” he said. Iran will announce its official position on the matter at the appropriate moment, he added.

The Shi’ite Muslim Hezbollah, which is classified as a terrorist group by the United States, supports Prime Minister Hassan Diab’s government.

Nasrallah also criticised the U.S. ambassador to Lebanon, Dorothy Shea, for what he described as interference in the country’s affairs.

Hezbollah lawmakers will submit a petition to the foreign ministry to summon her to ask that she adheres to agreements on diplomatic norms, he said.

A Shi’ite judge last month issued a ruling banning media in Lebanon from interviewing Shea after she heaped criticism on Hezbollah, saying her comments had incited sectarian strife.

Shea was later summoned for a meeting at the foreign ministry after which she said the page had been turned on the incident. Lebanese Foreign Minister Nassif Hitti emphasised the importance of media freedom and the right to free expression during the meeting, the ministry said in a statement.
