Mohammad Reza Sheybani and Siniora discussed the “latest political and regional developments in Lebanon” during their meeting.

Due to factional feuding between the Western-backed government and the Hezbollah-led opposition, Lebanon has been without a president since November 2007 when the term of Emile Lahoud ended.

On Monday, an attempt to select a new President was postponed for the seventeenth time since Sep. 25. Army chief General Michel Sleiman has been slated for the post. The next attempt to select a President will take place on April 22.
