Sarraf welcomes Iranian Ambassador, Kardel in Yarzeh

Caretaker Minister of Defense, Yaacoub Sarraf, welcomed on Saturday at his ministry office in Yarzeh the Iranian Ambassador to Lebanon Mohammad-Jalal Firouznia, with discussions reportedly focusing on the situation in Lebanon and the region, as well as the bilateral ties between the two countries.

Sarraf also met with the United Nations Special Coordinator for Lebanon, Pernille Dahler Kardel, who paid him a farewell visit upon winding up his mission in Lebanon.

The pair dwelt on the issue of the Syrian refugees and its repercussions on the economic and security situation, in the wake of the rise in the number of displaced Syrians convicted by the military court.

Talks also tackled the issue of the terrorists who entered Syria and the danger they pose to regional and international communities.

Finally, they discussed the issue of the alleged tunnels on the southern border and Lebanon's commitment to international laws and resolutions, especially Resolution #1701.
