A top Iranian member of parliament has held talks with Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah, the leader of the Lebanese resistance movement Hezbollah, to discuss the latest political developments in Lebanon and the Middle East.

IRNA said Friday that Alaeddin Boroujerdi met with Nasrallah earlier in the day hours after he arrived in the Lebanese capital, Beirut, from Syria, where he had held key talks with top Syrian officials.

Boroujerdi, who serves as the chairman of the Iranian Parliament (Majlis)’s National Security and Foreign Policy Committee, was also expected to sit down with Lebanese Foreign Minister Gebran Basil, according to Lebanese sources, while a meeting was also planned between him and Mohammad Ra’ad, a senior member of Hezbollah representing the party in the Lebanese parliament.

Boroujerdi and Nasrallah had met in January during the Iranian legislator’s previous trip to Lebanon, which saw him also meet Lebanese Prime Minister Tammam Salam and Parliament Speaker Nabih Berri.

The Iranian official traveled to Syria on Wednesday at the head of a delegation on a two-day visit. During his stay in Damascus, Boroujerdi met with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. In the meeting, he voiced Iran’s full support for Syria’s battle against foreign-backed Takfiri terrorist groups.

The lawmaker also said in a press briefing after the meeting with the Syrian leader that that the Islamic Republic is ready to examine and discuss any request by Syria for sending military forces to the Arab country; Press TV reported.
