Iran Might Offer Military Aid to Lebanon

November 25, 2008

Lebanon’s President Michel Suleiman arrived in Iran for a first official visit on Monday. He was greeted by Iranian Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki at Tehran’s airport, Iranian news agency IRNA reported.

London-based Arabic-language newspaper al-Quds al-Arabi quoted Hizbullah sources as saying that Iran may offer Suleiman military aid, including missile systems.
Suleiman came to Iran accompanied by a delegation of high ranking ministers, and is scheduled to meet with his counterpart, President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Mottaki and the Secretary of the Supreme National Security Council Saeed Jalili.
Tehran attributes great importance to the visit, in light of the major role Iran plays in internal Lebanese politics. A spokesman for the Iranian Foreign Ministry said this week that Suleiman was expected to discuss with the senior Iranian officials the countries’ relations and regional developments in Iraq, Afghanistan and Palestine, as well as ‘the conspiracies of the Zionist regime.
