Tehran, YJC. Boroujerdi says the Iran welcomes the expansion of ties with regional countries, especially Saudi Arabia and Lebanon.

"Iran attaches special significance to strengthening regional security and stability,” Alaeddin Boroujerdi, Head of National Security and Foreign Policy Committee of the Majlis told reporters after a Friday meeting with Lebanese Foreign Minister Gebran Bassil in Beirut.

The Iranian MP also noted that the ongoing political developments in the region can help restore security, peace and stability to Lebanon.

The lawmaker is in Beirut to participate in the commemoration ceremony of six Hezbollah members and a general of Iran's Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) who lost their lives in an Israeli airstrike on Syria’s Golan Heights on January 18.

The Iranian legislator said he had held "constructive and positive” talks with the Lebanese foreign minister on the latest developments in the region and ways to improve Tehran-Beirut bonds, particularly in trade and economy.

On January 18, an Israeli military helicopter fired two missiles into Amal Farms in the strategic southwestern Syrian city of Quneitra, close to the line separating the Syrian part of the Golan Heights from the Israeli-occupied sector.

Six Hezbollah members as well as the IRGC general, Brigadier General Mohammad Ali Allahdadi, lost their lives in the Israeli assault.
