Iran FM says to meet French counterpart in Beirut

Iranian Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki, whose country is a main backer of Hizbullah, said he would meet his French counterpart on Monday in Beirut.


French Foreign Minister Philippe Douste-Blazy, also visiting Beirut, said earlier on Monday it was important to maintain contacts with Tehran as part of efforts to resolve the crisis in Lebanon, where Hizbullah and Israel have been at war for nearly three weeks. Mottaki said he would meet Douste-Blazy at the Iranian embassy in Beirut. (Reuters)
