Referring to the Lebanese Foreign Minister's comments on Iran's fuel shipment, Khatibzadeh said: "The Islamic Republic of Iran has always been committed to the governments of friendly countries in terms of cooperation and assistance."

"What was done in this regard was a request from the Lebanese traders; the purchase was normal and this shipment was sent."

He added: "I will not comment on the internal affairs of Lebanon, but I assure you that if tomorrow the government wants to buy fuel from us to solve the problems of its people, we will still provide it to them."

Peace and stability in Lebanon are more important to us than anything else, and we help the Lebanese government succeed, he highlighted.

In the meetings that took place, the issue of Afghanistan was a serious issue at the level of the President and the Foreign Minister of Iran."

Khatibzadeh noted: "In this meeting, a serious agreement was reached on several points, one of which was the formation of an inclusive government with the participation of all ethnicities and groups in Afghanistan that reflect the ethnic and demographic order of the country, and that Afghanistan's achievements will be realized in the future."

"No foreign interference is acceptable, and everyone should help the Afghan people shape their future and have their voices heard," he said.

Saeed Khatibzadeh said: 60 million doses of vaccine will be imported next month. Only the Ministry of Health will comment on which vaccine will be imported to Iran, and any vaccine approved by the Ministry of Health will be imported.


Khatibzadeh added: "The United States, is the biggest violator of human rights and the basic rights of people, including the right to live and access to basic facilities, whose actions have gone unpunished during these years."

"Last week, you saw a 10-member convoy of ordinary Afghans attacked. At first, they said that extremist groups had attacked, and yesterday they said, 'Sorry, it was a mistake.' The killing of women, children, etc. is easily considered a mistake by them. This situation has created painful conditions for the world," he noted.

Regarding the follow-up on the assassination of General Qasem Soleimani, Khatibzadeh said: "The Minister of Foreign Affairs had a meeting inside the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and after that, other meetings were held to clarify some aspects of the legal and international prosecution of this cowardly assassination."

He noted: "General Soleimani was the peacemaker of our region and we will not allow the US to remain unpunished in terms of international law.  The second anniversary of martyred General Soleimani's assassination is close, and God willing, we will see a trial before that."
