In a message on Saturday evening, Seyed Hassan Nasrallah, the Secretary General of Lebanon's Hezbollah, congratulated Masoud Pezeshkian on his election victory as the 9th Islamic President of Iran.

Iran Press/ West Asia: The Secretary-General of the Islamic Resistance in Lebanon - Hezbollah, Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah, congratulated the Iranian president-elect Masoud Pezeshkian on his victory in the snap presidential election, on Saturday. 

In a congratulatory message sent on behalf of Hezbollah, Sayyed Nasrallah wished the president-elect a successful term in office, hoping that Pezeshkian achieves the aspirations of the "sacrificial and loyal" Iranian people.

He explained that Hezbollah and all Resistance movements in the region, "who have for many years been engaged in open confrontation with Zionist occupation forces" and the project of American hegemony, view the Islamic Republic of Iran as their [axis of] support. And this, according to Sayyed Nasrallah, has been the case since the triumph of the Islamic Revolution, under the leadership of Sayyed Ruhollah Khomeini, and later Sayyed Ali Khamenei and the successive governments under his guidance.

In a competitive race against Saeed Jalili, Pezeshkian emerged victorious with over 16 million votes out of approximately 30 million cast.
