Iranian Parliament Speaker’s Special Aide for International Affairs slammed French President Emanuel Marcon over what he called interference in Lebanon’s affairs after the Beirut explosion.
“Lebanon needs assistance and solidarity, not intervention by external parties,” Abdollahian said in a tweet on his account late Friday.

Macron has asked for a “new political pact” among the Lebanese groups during his visit to Lebanon just two days after the devastating blasts rocked Beirut Port, killing at least 154 people, injuring nearly 6,000 others and leaving more than 60 people missing.
“I will talk to all political forces to ask them for a new pact. I am here today to propose a new political pact to them,” said the French president in central Beirut on Thursday.
“I will be back on September 1, and if they can’t do it, I’ll take my political responsibility” toward Lebanon, said Macron.
