BEIRUT, Lebanese President Michel Aoun said on Monday that Iran had a major role in the return of Syrian refugees to their own country.
“The Syrian refugees issue in Lebanon requires a treatment that takes into consideration the necessity of their safe return to the stable Syrian areas,” Aoun reportedly told Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Zarif during a meeting in Beirut.
Zarif, meanwhile, relayed Aoun a message from Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, inviting him to visit his country and praising the Lebanese-Iranian relations.
Zarif, who arrived in Beirut Sunday, announced that the purpose of his visit is to show his country’s support of the newly formed Lebanese government.
