Lebanese President Michel Aoun plans to pay an official visit to Iran in October as part of efforts to deepen Tehran-Beirut relations, local media reports were cited as saying by Tasnim News Agency on Sunday.

The Arabic-language Ad-Diyar newspaper said Aoun is expected to discuss mutual ties as well as regional and international developments with Iranian officials.

Heading a high-ranking delegation, Aoun will travel to Tehran in the near future at the official invitation of the Islamic Republic, the Arabic-language Al Mayadeen TV had reported in August.

Lebanese Foreign Minister Gebran Bassil announced the visit in June and said Lebanon welcomes expansion of political, economic and parliamentary ties with Iran.

At the time, Bassil highlighted the key role Iran plays in resolving regional problems and praised its contribution to peace and stability.
