President Michel Aoun received at Baabda palace on Monday, the Assistant to the Iranian Foreign Minister for Arab and African Affairs, Hussein Jabri Ansari, who conveyed to him a message from President Hassan Rouhani on the nuclear deal following the US unilateral decision to withdraw from the agreement.
During the meeting, Aoun regretted Washington pull-out, stressing that Lebanon considers the deal as a pillar for the region's stability and that it contributes to freeing it from weapons of mass destruction.
Accordingly, the President hailed the other states' commitment to the agreement considering the negative reverberations of its termination on the regional security and stability.
Turning to Syria, Aoun extolled Iran's endeavors to reach a political solution to the crisis next door, especially as such efforts help facilitate the Syrian refugees' return to their homeland.
Furthermore, Ansari delivered to his host Rouhani's keenness on bolstering the bilateral relations between Iran and Lebanon in all fields.
In turn, Aoun hailed the Lebanese-Iranian ties, wishing the continuation of stability and further progress for the Islamic Republic.
