Lebanese PM to visit Iran on Nov. 27 (UPDATE)
Editor's Note: background has been added
Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri will arrive in Iran on Nov. 27, the Fars news agency reported.
According to the news agency, Hariri will arrive in Iran together with the Lebanese foreign minister and transport minister. Hariri will meet with Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Vice President Mohammad-Reza Rahimi, and other Iranian officials within the two-day visit.
Bilateral ties and regional issues are planned to be discussed at the meeting.
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad visited Lebanon October 13.
During his two-day state visit, the Iranian president met with Lebanese President Michel Suleiman and the parliamentary chairman Nabih Beri.
Moreover, the Iranian President spoke at a rally in the Lebanese town of Bint Jbeil, which is considered to be the main base of Hezbollah in southern Lebanon along the border with Israel.
Ahmadinejad's visit caused an ambiguous reaction in Lebanon. While the supporters of Hezbollah and Amal warmly welcomed the distinguished guest, some members of the pro-Western Lebanese parliamentary majority accused the Iranian president of the interference in domestic affairs.
