“To reassure Iran’s support of Lebanon after the election of the new Lebanese President, Michel Aoun, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif will travel to Lebanese capital city of Beirut next week,” said Bahram Ghasemi, the Spokesman of Iran’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, on Friday.
“Mr. Zarif will have bilateral meetings with the senior officials of Lebanon to renew consultations with discussing the latest developments of the region, Lebanon, and Syria,” he noted.
