Nasrallah receives honorary degree from Iranian university

From China View:
Lebanon's Hezbollah Secretary-General Hassan Nasrallah received an honorary doctorate from an Iranian university in Isfahan, the semi-official Fars news agency reported on Sunday.

Nasrallah was granted the degree "in the field of political science, as a part of the events to mark the university's 300th birthday," the report said.

The degree was received by an envoy in Nasrallah's absence.

Nasrallah thanked Iran, in a statement read at the ceremony, for "25 years of support and aid for the Hezbollah organization and its warriors in southern Lebanon," adding that his group had won "two big triumphs" against "the most equipped armed forces in the region," referring implicitly to Israel.

He also stressed in the statement that "Iran's support was always the main factor in the victories and it always will be."
