A lawmaker says Iran welcomes expansion of ties with regional countries, particularly Saudi Arabia and Lebanon.
“The Islamic Republic of Iran attaches special importance to improving security and stability in the region, (including) in Lebanon,” Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Committee Chairman Alaeddin Boroujerdi told reporters after a meeting with Lebanese Foreign Minister Gebran Bassil in Beirut on Friday.
He said the ongoing political efforts can help restore security, peace and stability to Lebanon, Press TV reported.
Boroujerdi was in Beirut to participate in the commemoration ceremony of six Hezbollah members and an Islamic Revolution Guards Corps general who lost their lives in an Israeli airstrike in Syria near the occupied Golan Heights on January 18.
The parliamentarian said he held “constructive and positive” talks with the Lebanese foreign minister on the latest developments in the region and ways to improve Tehran-Beirut relations.
