Iran FM arrives in Beirut

Beirut, Feb 10, IRNA – Iranian Minister of Foreign Affairs Mohammad-Javad Zarif arrived in Beirut on Sunday to meet Lebanese authorities.

Zarif was welcomed by Iranian and Lebanese officials upon arriving at Rafic Hariri International Airport.

On his two-day visit, Zarif is slated to meet Lebanese President Michel Oun, Prime Minister Saad Hariri, the chief of the Parliament Nabih Bari, and Foreign Minister Gebran Bassil.

On Sunday evening, Zarif will host some Lebanese and Palestinian officials and figures in the Embassy of Iran in Beirut.

Zarif's latest visit to Lebanon dates back to two years ago when he held talks with Lebanon’s newly-elected President Aoun in Beirut, becoming the first foreign minister to meet with the Lebanese head of state.

He also met with Lebanese Prime Minister, Saad Hariri, during his previous visit to Beirut.

Many observers see the visit in line with Iran's support and content with formation of national unity government in Lebanon.
