Tehran, Iran, Jul. 31 – The head of the Lebanese Hezbollah, Sheikh Hassan Nasrollah, is scheduled to meet Iran’s ultra-conservative President-elect Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in Tehran on Monday.

Nasrollah is also expected to meet with Iran’s incumbent President Mohammad Khatami and hard-line Majlis Speaker Gholam-Ali Haddad-Adel during his multi-day trip to Iran which he left for on Sunday.

Speaking in the United States Congress on Thursday, David Welch, an assistant Secretary of State in the State Department, told the House International Relations Committee that Iranian cadres were training Hezbollah fighters in Lebanon.

In late June, Hezbollah announced that the election of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad as President of Iran would “revive and rejuvenate” the goals of the Islamic Revolution.

“With the victory of Ahmadinejad in Iran’s presidential race, this country returned to the foundations and revolutionary objectives which Ayatollah [Ruhollah”> Khomeini founded”, a member of Hezbollah’s political bureau, the group’s decision-making body, said.

Sheikh Mohammad al-Kotharani said, “Ahmadinejad’s top priority will be to protect the resistance [in Lebanon”>, support the Palestinians in their struggle against Israeli occupying troops, and support Syria”.
