Iran expressed its rejection of foreign interference in Libya on Sunday evening after talks between the Senior Advisor to Iran's Foreign Minister for Special Political Affairs, Ali Asghar Khaji, and Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Vershinin.

The discussions dealt with the latest political developments in the region and focused on the developments of the Libyan, Syrian and Yemeni files, according to the IRNA new agency.

When touching upon the situations in Libya and Yemen, the Iranian official emphasized adherence to national unity, respect for territorial integrity and the settlement of disputes through political means in both countries, without foreign interference.

Last Saturday, Iranian President Ibrahim Raisi said that his country is being exposed to a conspiracy by hostile parties, saying "the Americans and our enemies tried to make the country unsafe by applying actions taken previously in Libya and Syria, but they failed".

Protests have gripped the Islamic Republic for over 50 days since the death of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini. She was arrested for an alleged breach of the country’s dress code for women.
