A senior official said hegemonic powers and reactionary countries in the Middle East are behind the branding of Lebanon’s resistance movement, Hezbollah, as a terrorist organization by some Arab states. In a meeting with Syrian clerics in Tehran on Saturday, Ali Akbar Velayati, a senior adviser to Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei on international affairs, said Muslims and Arabs are proud of Hezbollah, Press TV reported.

“While intellectual affiliation and origin of regional extremists, terrorists and Takfiris are quite obvious, we are witnessing that [in a move] led by certain colonial powers and supported by some regional reactionary regimes, Hezbollah, which is the symbol of resistance and a source of honor for the Muslim and Arab world, is declared a terrorist group,” he said. Velayati emphasized that all enemies’ plots would be thwarted in the region. At a meeting of the Arab League’s foreign ministers in Cairo on Friday, the group declared Hezbollah a terrorist organization. The decision came after the (Persian) Gulf Cooperation Council officially added Hezbollah to its so-called list of “terrorist” organizations on March 2.
