Iran's Boroujerdi in Lebanon for Talks with Senior Officials

Chairman of Iranian Parliament's National Security and Foreign Policy Committee Alaeddin Boroujerdi arrived in Lebanon Friday for a brief visit to hold talks with top officials.

He met during his trip with Prime Minister Tammam Salam, Foreign Minister Jebran Bassil, and earlier Hizbullah chief Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah.

Discussions tackled latest local and regional developments.

He said after talks with Salam: “We hope that next time we come to Lebanon, we would be able to visit the Baabda palace.”

“We expressed to Salam Iran's support for the political and national dialogue among all parties and hope that it will achieve its goals for the sake of the high national interest,” he added.

Following talks with Bassil, he revealed that the foreign minister will travel to Iran on Saturday where he will hold a series of meetings.

Al-Joumhouria newspaper had reported on Friday that the Iranian official will meet with Foreign Minister Jebran Bassil and MP Mohammed Raad, head of Hizbullah's Loyalty to the Resistance bloc.

Boroujerdi arrived in Lebanon from Syria where he met with President Bashar Assad.

The Iranian official had last visited Lebanon in January where he held talks with Speaker Nabih Berri, Salam, and Nasrallah.
