Iran, due to its role in confronting the Zionist regime of Israel and also in fight against Takfiri terrorism, attributes a special status to Lebanon in its foreign policy, Mohammad Fathali said after his meeting with Lebanese Foreign Minister Gebran Bassil.
‘All arrangements have been made by Iranian embassy for the expatriates to cast their votes in three Lebanese cities, he added referring to the 12th Iran’s presidential election which is underway simultaneously in Iran and 102 other countries.
Voting stations opened in Iran at 8am local time (03:30 GMT) on Friday for the 12th presidential and the fifth city and village council elections in about 63,500 polling stations.
“As Iran relies on popular participation in country’s affairs, it would not withdraw from its principles, but welcomes constructive talks with all regional countries, particularly the neighboring ones,” said the Iranian diplomat.
