NNA - Secretary General of Hezbollah, Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah, on Wednesday cabled Iranian Foreign Minister, Mohammad Javad Zarif, to whom he expressed a stance of solidarity after the recent US sanctions against him.


"When the US administration announced sanctions on your person and added you to the honor list, my brothers and I decided to send you a cable to express our solidarity and respect; but I preferred to delay the cable till today, August 14, the day where the Resistance in Lebanon defeated America and Israel during the 33-day war in July and August 2006, with the full support of the Islamic Republic of Iran," Nasrallah said in his cable.


"You are the loud voice in all international instances, who speaks the truth in the face of the world's fiercest tyrants, that is the US and Trump," he added.


"They wanted to besiege, isolate and terrorize you. Yet, your presence and influence only became stronger," he said.
