BEIRUT: Hezbollah Chief Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah held talks with Alaeddine Boroujerdi, who heads the Iranian parliamentary committee on national security and foreign affairs, the party’s media office said Saturday.

Nasrallah and Boroujerdi discussed a range of issues concerning the region.

Boroujerdi left from Rafik Hariri Airport Saturday morning.

The Iranian official arrived Thursday for a two-day visit to Lebanon, where he met with Lebanese President Michel Sleiman and Speaker Nabih Berri among other officials.

During his visit, which followed his trip to Damascus, Boroujerdi said Iran would never negotiate on its support for the resistance, referring to Hezbollah, Tehran's ally in Lebanon.
