MOSCOW, September 9. /TASS/. Lebanon feels Russia’s support in the issue of overcoming the crises in the Middle East, Lebanese lawmaker Qassem Hashem told a news conference on Wednesday.
According to him, during a meeting with the Russian presidential envoy for the Middle East and Africa and Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov earlier on Wednesday the two sides discussed a wide range of problems faced by the Middle East region. "Russia retains its important role in the region, it counters Western plans to split the Middle Eastern countries," the parliamentarian said. "The Russian side is closely following the crises in the region and realizes the threat of irreconcilable terrorism."
"We feel Russia’s support of the just cause of the peoples of the Middle East to counter attempts by the United States to impose its will on the peoples in the region," Qassem Hashem said.
Meanwhile, former Lebanese Defense Minister Abdul Rahim Mourad noted that BRICS and Russia could be "the main external force" in the Middle East. "The United States continues its attempts to single-handedly solve problems in its own interests," he said. "We would like BRICS and Russia to become a major external force that would play a role in the region." "I think we will soon see big changes on the international scene," Abdul Rahim Mourad said.
