President Michel Aoun held talks on his second day in Iraq with Speaker Salim al-Jabburi and Iraqi Vice President Iyad Allawi, Aoun's media office said on Wednesday.
President Michel Aoun first held talks with al-Jabburi in the presence of Iraqi and Lebanese delegations.
Aoun led a delegation Tuesday to Iraq on the first visit by a Lebanese head of state to the war-scarred country, for talks that included ways to eradicate terrorism.
He held talks with Iraqi President Fuad Masum and Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi before he was due to travel to Armenia on Wednesday.
“We had constructive talks which reflect the historical and brotherly ties that link our two countries and our people," Aoun told a joint news conference with Masum.
He said Arab states and the international community must build "joint efforts to fight against terrorism in an efficient and radical way, to eliminate them and end the factors that favor terrorist ideology".
