A Kremlin official traveled to Lebanon recently and met with Hezbollah secretary-general Hassan Nasrallah, the official Russian news agency ITAR-TASS reported on Sunday.

Moscow’s deputy foreign minister, Mikhail Bogdanov, also met with the leaders of Lebanon’s rival political and sectarian factions. The two-day trip was seen as a gesture of Russian goodwill and an expression of its support for efforts to forge a unity government.
