TEHRAN, Feb. 26 (UPI) -- Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad says he is seeking stronger ties with Lebanon in a united front against Israel.

In a meeting Sunday with Lebanese Defense Minister Fayez Ghosn in Tehran, Amadinejad said Israel will destroy all nations in the Middle East if it finds an opportunity, Iran's Islamic Republic News Agency reported Sunday.

"There is no doubt they will fail to achieve their goals, because the world has undergone dramatic changes and their days are numbered. The world order advocated by them is going to end and a new order will based on justice and humanitarian principles will replace it," Ahmadinejad was quoted as saying.
