“Tehran has no limit in its plans for helping the Hezbollah group,” the Arabic-language media quoted President Aoun as saying while dismissing speculations that Lebanon is envisaging a cap to Iran’s support for the resistance movement.
“We have normal relations with Iran which shouldn’t be a barrier in the face of normal relations with the Arab world,” the Lebanese President added.
In relevant remarks on Saturday, Boroujerdi and Secretary General of the Lebanese Hezbollah Resistance Movement Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah in a meeting in Beirut discussed the latest regional developments.
During the meeting in the Lebanese capital, Boroujerdi and Hezbollah chief exchanged views on Lebanon’s developments and the Syrian crisis.
The two sides underlined the need for adopting political solutions to the regional crises.
Boroujerdi visited Lebanon at the head of a parliamentary delegation to hold talks with the senior Lebanese officials.
On December 28, Lebanon’s national unity government headed by Prime Minister Saad Hariri won a vote of confidence in parliament.
The new cabinet was announced on December 18, less than two months after the country’s parliament elected Michel Aoun, a Christian politician, as president. Aoun’s election ended a 29-month-long political stalemate in the country.
Before visiting Lebanon, the Iranian parliamentary delegation paid a visit to Syria, where they held talks with senior Syrian officials, including President Bashar al-Assad, Foreign Minister Walid al-Muallem and Parliament Speaker Hadiya Khalaf Abbas.
