Media: Lebanese president to visit Iran in Oct.

Lebanese President Michel Aoun plans to pay an official visit to Iran in October as part of efforts to deepen Beirut-Tehran relations in all fields, local media reports said on Sunday.

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

Heading a high-ranking delegation, President Aoun will visit 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 that Lebanon welcomes the development of political, economic and parliamentary ties with Iran.

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