TEHRAN, Sept. 20 (Xinhua) -- Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian said his country is ready to help meet Lebanon's energy demand, the official IRNA news agency reported on Tuesday.
Amir-Abdollahian made the remarks in a meeting with his Lebanese counterpart Abdallah Bou Habib on the sidelines of the 77th session of the United Nations (UN) General Assembly in New York.
During the meeting, the two sides exchanged views on important regional and global issues and discussed bilateral relations, according to the report.
Iran's foreign minister stressed his country's readiness to supply oil and other aid to Lebanon to overcome the problems it is facing, according to the report.
Over the past months, the Iranian ambassador to Lebanon Mojtaba Amani has repeatedly said his country was ready to provide Lebanon with fuel commodities.
Lebanon, which suffers from low foreign currency reserves, has been struggling in importing enough oil to alleviate prolonged energy shortages.
