Iran's Defense Minister Mostafa Mohammad-Najjar says the US and Israel are the main reason behind regional violence and instability.
"Washington is intensifying the Lebanese crisis in a bid to thicken the layers of Israel defense," said Major General Mohammad-Najjar in a Tuesday meeting with senior defense officials.
"The United States paints itself as an advocate of peace and stability whilst using all political and military power to foment violence in the region," he added.
Mohammad-Najjar warned against foreign interference in Lebanon and called on the country's political parties to resolve the ongoing crisis through dialogue and negotiations.
