TEHRAN, Jan. 07 (MNA) – The Iranian ambassador to Lebanon held a meeting with the former president of Lebanon Michel Aoun in Beirut on Saturday.

Mojtaba Amani, the ambassador of the Islamic Republic of Iran in Beirut said in a tweet, "Today I met with Michel Aoun to congratulate him on the new year, and this was an opportunity to appreciate his courageous stance towards Resistance during his tenure as the president."

According to Al-Ahed news website, Amani also announced that they discussed the latest developments in Lebanon and the region.
