Iran not wanting anything but welfare for Lebanon: FM

“We encourage all Lebanese parties to speed up the election of the president and complete the political process in this important country of the region,” the Iranian foreign minister said in a joint press conference with his Lebanese counterpart on Thursday.
Tehran will support any agreement that is reached among the Lebanese parties in this regard, he added.
