Lebanese Prime Minister Sa'ad Hariri will lead a delegation of Lebanese officials on a two-day state visit to Iran next week, the Islamic Republic's state-run news agency, FARS, reported.
According to the report, Hariri will discuss "bilateral ties and cooperation…over a wide range of issues of mutual interest" with Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
In his first official state visit to Lebanon last month, Ahmadinejad was greeted by thousands of cheering supporters of Hezbollah, the Lebanese-based terror group that is part of the country's unity government.
Iran, along with Syria, provides Hezbollah with finances, weaponry and training.
"Tehran and Beirut enjoy friendly and close ties due to Iran's support for the establishment of security and tranquility of Lebanon," the report stated.
