BEIRUT: Iranian Ambassador to Lebanon Ghazanfar Roknabadi and Grand Mufti Mohammad Rashid Qabbani stressed the need for religious unity against takfiris in the region, a statement from Qabbani’s office said after the two held a meeting.
Both the mufti and the envoy agreed on the need to preserve unity between various Muslim sects and other religions especially as the country is witnessing plots concocted by “terrorist takfiri groups guided by the Zionist enemy.”
Roknabadi visited the mufti to hand him in an invitation to an upcoming event in Malaysia, titled "Defense Conference for the Aqsa Mosque and al-Quds.”
The event is set to take place in the presence of various Muslim scholars.
The ambassador also said his country believes that a “Lebanese president chosen by the entire Lebanese people is the most suitable choice.”
He said Iran supports stability and national unity in Lebanon and voiced confidence Lebanon would get over the presidential election phase with success.
