TEHRAN, Iran  — Lebanese Prime Minister Sa'ad Hariri said on Monday that his country will not be part of any international group that aims to pressure Iran over its controversial nuclear program.

Saad Hariri explained that Lebanon supports Iran's right to have nuclear power for peaceful purposes.

Hariri spoke at the end of his three-day visit to Iran. It followed Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's October tour of Lebanon, during which the Iranian leader reinforced Teheran's ties to the powerful Lebanese Hizbullah group that is part of Hariri's fragile unity government.
