upcoming visit will open new chapter in Iran-Lebanon ties
Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki said here on Monday that the upcoming visit to Tehran of Lebanese premier will open a new chapter in Tehran-Beirut relations.
He added that Saad Haririís visit will be a great stride towards
materialization of agreements reached between the two sides.
Mottaki made the remarks while talking to reporters on the sidelines of the 20th International Seminar on the Persian Gulf, inaugurated here this morning.
Iran-Lebanon relations have been friendly and amicable in the past three decades following the victory of the 1979 Islamic Revolution, he said.
The Islamic Republic of Iran has always supported the Lebanese territorial integrity and national solidarity and resistance of the Lebanese nation, he remarked.
Referring to recent historic visit to Lebanon of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Mottaki announced that 17 documents on bilateral cooperation were inked by the two sides.
Prime Minister Hariri, heading a high-ranking politico-economic delegation, is to visit Iran on November 27.
A delegation from Lebanese parliament is also to arrive in the Iranian capital on Thursday (November 25), ahead of Hariri's trip.
Saad Hariri is the son of Rafik Hariri, the assassinated former Lebanese prime minister.
After his father's death, he inherited the helm of the Movement of the Future, an essentially Sunni movement that was created and led by his late father.
