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 Hizbullah, which is part of Hariri's fragile unity government.

Lebanese and Iranian officials signed several accords on Monday.
