Iran: 'Israel Represents a Danger to Middle East'.

By VOA News Iran's Foreign Minister Kamal Kharrazi, on a visit to Lebanon, said Israel poses a danger to the Middle East, especially after the election of Ariel Sharon as prime minister.

Kharrazi says there needs to be more coordination between Islamic countries in the region as a result. He urged Arab states to adopt a firm policy on Israel at the summit of Arab leaders in Jordan later this month. The Iranian foreign minister said Israel represents a danger to Lebanon in particular because it is on what he calls the front line.

Iran is a main backer of Lebanon's Hizbullah guerrillas.
