A delegation led by top Iranian presidential aide Ali Akbar Javanfekr has arrived in Lebanon on Friday, where it toured Lebanon's southern border fence.


"No fence – be it concrete or iron – will save Israel," Javanfekr, who serves as Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad media advisor, was quoted as saying by Hezbollah's TV network Al-Manar.

Speaking to journalists on the border, the Iranian official said that "the fence that Israel wants to construct here proves that it is worried. Our visit in the area is meant to renew our promise to the shahids (martyrs) that fell on this holy land."

Javanfekr peeked into Israel on Friday


Javanfekr, who is considered to be one of the Iranian president's close confidantes and serves as the editor in chief of IRNA, the Islamic Republic's official news agency, met with senior Lebanese officials and members of Hezbollah's leadership.


"The pure blood was not spilled in vain and will eventually achieve victory against the exploitive Zionist enemy," said Javanfekr while visiting the gravesite of senior Hezbollah commander Imad Mughniyeh.


Addressing Israel's threats to attack Iran's nuclear facilities, Javanfekr said "Israel has crazy senior officials – and others who are sensible. The latter must restrain the crazy ones because they are too insignificant to carry out their threats."


Javanfekr claimed that the United States "Understands the extent of the risk involved in attacking Iran, and I do not believe they will allow (Israel) to do it – they know what the consequences will be."

While touring the town of Maroun al-Ras, the official also visited a kindergarten that was renovated by an Iranian organization committed to rebuilding facilities damaged during the Second Lebanon War. The Iranian president's aide listened to battle stories from the 2006 war, and said he was "proud to stand on the land of resistance."


Javanfekr said that his delegation's visit was meant to expand cooperation between Iran and Lebanon. He professed willingness to solve Lebanon's energy crisis, saying that "Iran can build a power station immediately."


Official Iranian visits to Lebanon's border with Israel have turned routine in recent years. Ahmadinejad famously traveled to the region in October 2010, when he promised to "free Palestine by force."
