BEIRUT: Hezbollah leader Sayyed Hasan Narallah congratulated Iranian president-elect Hassan Rouhani Sunday on winning the nation's presidential elections.

“As we congratulate you and ourselves, too, on this decent and wonderful election, we turn to God Almighty ... to bless you and support you and make you able, through a government of hope, to achieve all the hopes,” Nasrallah said in a message to Rouhani.

“We in Hezbollah-Lebanon, and with us all the Mujahideen [fighters] and this resistance country, offer our blessing on the occasion of winning deservedly the confidence of the great nation,” Nasrallah added.

He said Rouhani’s election has made the wish of Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei come true.

"As this political saga revived, by your blessed election, the hopes and aspirations of the people of our beloved Iran, it also renewed hopes for all your friends and beloved brothers from the oppressed Arab and Islamic peoples,” Nasrallah said.
