Lebanese Foreign Minister Abdallah Rashid Bouhabib warned against the negative consequences of the drawn-out Israeli war against Gaza on regional peace.

The continuation of the Israeli regime’s war on Gaza would undermine the opportunities for peace in the region, Minister of Foreign Affairs of Lebanon Bouhabib said in a joint press conference with the caretaker foreign minister of Iran, held in Beirut on Monday.

He also noted that Lebanon and Iran share views about the threats posed by the lingering onslaught on the Gaza Strip.

For his part, the Iranian diplomat said he has visited Beirut for talks on the regional issues, particularly the situation in Gaza and Rafah.

Stressing the need for collective action against the Zionist regime’s acts of aggression, Ali Baqeri said efforts are being made to hold a ministerial meeting of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation in this regard.

The Iranian caretaker minister also hailed the Islamic resistance forces of Lebanon as the anchorage of stability and calm in the region, stressing that Iran pushes for Lebanon’s stability, tranquility and progress.
