Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif has reiterated Iran's support for the Lebanese government, saying Tehran is waiting for Beirut to show a desire to accept its past offers of military assistance, Press TV reported.

Zarif made the remarks upon his arrival at Beirut's international airport on Sunday at the start of his first visit to Lebanon since its new government was formed late last month.

"We always have this type of readiness and we announced on other occasions that this tendency exists in Iran but we are waiting for this desire to exist on the Lebanese side,” said Zarif.

The top Iranian diplomat said his visit was aimed at declaring Tehran’s support for Lebanon and to announce that it "has complete and comprehensive readiness to deal with the brotherly Lebanese government in all areas."
