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

(tasnim) -- The Arabic-language Ad-Diyar newspaper said that Aoun is expected to discuss mutual ties as well as regional and international developments with the Iranian officials.

Heading a high-ranking delegation, President Aoun will pay a trip to Tehran in the near future at the official invitation of the Islamic Republic, the Arabic-language Al Mayadeen TV had reported in August.

The Lebanese Foreign Minister Gebran Bassil announced the visit in June and said that Lebanon welcomes development of political, economic and parliamentary ties with Iran.

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