Leader of Lebanon’s Hezbollah resistance movement, Seyyed Hassan Nasrallah, has met with visiting Russian deputy foreign minister and presidential envoy, Mikhail Bogdanov.

The Saturday meeting between Nasrallah and “Russian President [Vladimir] Putin’s special envoy” in the Lebanese capital of Beirut focused on regional developments, particularly Lebanon and Syria, read a statement released by the resistance group as cited in a Sunday report by local news website Daily Star.

The senior Russian diplomat was accompanied in the talks with Nasrallah by Russian Ambassador to Lebanon Alexander Zasypkin.

Hezbollah’s international relations officer, Ammar Musawi, also attended the meeting.

No other details about the meeting have been released.

Bogdanov arrived in Lebanon on Thursday to take part in the 70th anniversary of the establishment of Russian-Lebanese diplomatic ties. He wrapped up his two-day formal visit to Lebanon early Sunday morning, departing for Turkey.

During his tour, the Russian official also met with Lebanese Prime Minister Tammam Salam, Parliament Speaker Nabih Berri and former president, Michel Sleiman, and held a joint press conference on Friday with head of Hezbollah’s parliamentary bloc, Mohammad Raad.

He also met on Saturday with chief of Progressive Socialist Party (PSP) Walid Jumblatt at his residence in Clemenceau, where top PSP officials were also present.

The development comes as Lebanon is struggling to resist attempts by foreign-backed Takfiri terrorists to infiltrate into its territory mostly from war-ravaged Syria, where militants, including ISIL terrorists, have been running an armed campaign to oust the government of President Bashar al-Assad.
