Hizbullah chief Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah met on Thursday with Free Patriotic Movement leader MP Michel Aoun in a meeting aimed at discussing the latest local and regional developments, announced the two sides in a statement on Friday.
The meeting was attended by Foreign Minister Jebran Bassil, Hizbullah Liaison and Coordination Officer Wafiq Safa, and Nasrallah's adviser Hussein Khalil.
The statement added that they focused on “the threat of takfiri terrorism, which jeopardizes the whole region.”
The gatherers stressed the need to “confront it through all possible means and to protect Lebanon and its stability.”
On local affairs, the meeting addressed the stalled presidential elections and various other issues.
Voice of Lebanon radio (93.3) reported earlier on Friday that the meeting was held on Thursday afternoon in Hizbullah's stronghold of Dahiyeh in Beirut's southern suburbs.
Lebanon has been without a president since May when the term of Michel Suleiman ended without the election of a successor.
Disputes between the rival March 8 and 14 camps over a compromise candidate have thwarted the polls.
Hizbullah's Loyalty to the Resistance and Aoun's Change and Reform bloc have been boycotting the electoral sessions over the dispute.
