Crisis in Lebanon – Iran wants to help build nuclear power plants


For more than three years, Lebanon has suffered the worst economic crisis in its history. It was exacerbated by the corona pandemic and the devastating explosion at the port of Beirut in August 2020. Electricity shortage is currently the biggest problem for the population. Now Iran wants to help – with nuclear power plants!

Due to the poor infrastructure, many Lebanese are without electricity for many hours a day. Electricity is largely generated by diesel generators.

During a visit to the Lebanese capital Beirut, Iranian Foreign Minister Hussein Amirabdollahian promised that the Mediterranean country would be helped to build nuclear power plants. “Iran is and will remain a friend of Lebanon in this difficult time,” Amirabdollahian stressed.

Hezbollah as long arm of Iran in Lebanon
During his visit, Amirabdollahian also wants to meet the head of the Lebanese Shiite organization Hezbollah. The militia was formed in 1982 with Iranian support in response to the Israeli invasion of Lebanon. She has been fighting Israel ever since, both politically and violently. The “Party of God” has been represented in parliament since 1992. The group is part of Iran’s “Axis of the Resistance”. However, Amirabdollahian said in Beirut that Iran does not want to interfere in the politics of the Lebanon interrupt.
