Secretary-General of the Lebanese Resistance Movement said that Iran managed to progress despite sanctions.

Iran Press/Middle East: At the beginning of his speech, the Secretary-General of Lebanese Hezbollah referred to the anniversary of the Tammuz war and the victories of the resistance and the failure of the US plan in the region and Lebanon.

Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah said: "The conditions that the Lebanese are facing economically need everyone's cooperation and sincerity."

Anyone who wants to resolve the crisis must think of the whole of Lebanon, not just one region because the consequences of the crisis are on everyone, he added.

Hezbollah's secretary-general said: "Moving towards the East does not mean severing ties with the West, and we welcome any country that is ready to help Lebanon."

He added that the Americans had taken a stand against the Chinese option in order to intimidate the Lebanese and stop them from moving towards China.

Nasrallah went on to say: "the Americans stand against any solution to the Lebanese crisis through threats and intimidation. We must do our best to resolve the Lebanese economic crisis. moving to countries whose doors are open to Lebanon has the benefit of showing the United States, etc., that Lebanon has other options. 

He emphasized: "Policies pursued in Lebanon over the past decades have led to the collapse of agriculture and industry, we need to turn the threat into an opportunity by turning Lebanon into a producer country after being a consumer country for many years."

Seyyed Hassan Nasrallah added: "One of the conditions for a dignified life for a nation is to be a producer of agriculture and industry." Today, we want to announce the nation's decision for jihad and the progress of agriculture and industry. We have to turn to agriculture to save all of Lebanon, he reiterated.

Unfortunately, some point to the fact that we want Lebanon in a faction dispute, we do not want to make the situation more difficult for anyone, and we put aside all our considerations so that Lebanon could pass this difficult stage. 

Seyed Hassan Nasrallah also referred to the interventions of the US ambassador in Beirut, saying: What does the appointment of a financial officer have to do with the US ambassador to Lebanon and why does he threaten the officials he has met with? It is the Lebanese people who determine the fate of the government, not the ambassador or the US State Department.

Nasrallah added that the Lebanese government has remained silent in the face of the US ambassador's attack on a Lebanese party accusing it with the worst allegations in the media.

Hezbollah's secretary-general noted that the US government is the most oppressive government in the world and that all the Zionist regime's aggression against Lebanon has taken place with US support.

Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah went on to say: "Americans are using failed economic policies to incite the Lebanese people against Hezbollah, adding the US option to blockade Hezbollah will not work, and we will not give up."

Addressing the US government, he said: "Your policy of tightening the noose on Lebanon will strengthen Hezbollah and weaken your allies and influence."

With the policies that you have pursued in Lebanon, the people have no refuge against themselves other than the resistance and its domestic and regional allies. Your policy will strengthen Hezbollah's allies and lead Lebanon to be within this framework, Nasrallah added.

Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah also spoke about the Palestinian issue: "Dealing with the economic situation should not distract us from supporting the Palestinians. Our government and people are with the Palestinian brothers, and we are ready to do anything to counter the plan for the West Bank annexation."

Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah said: "I heard from some personalities that they want to turn Lebanon into an Iranian model. Iran is making sacrifices when it agrees to sell oil products to Lebanon in Lebanese Pound. Iran's economic example is a good example because it has dealt with the siege and sanctions and has reached self-sufficiency

He praised Iran's resistance to US sanctions over the decades and compared Iran to Lebanon and said: "Rest assured that Lebanon does not have the elements of the Iranian model; a model that has made Iran stand up to US sanctions."

Regarding Iraq Hezbollah's secretary-general also said: "Iraq is a great opportunity for Lebanon and the two countries have very excellent relations."
