US President Barack Obama may discuss suspicions of arms trafficking to Hizbullah by Syria during his upcoming meeting with Lebanese Prime Minister Sa'ad Hariri, Reuters reported on Monday, citing a US official.

Israel recently suggested that Syria had transferred ballistic Scud missiles to Hizbullah, warning that Damascus would be held accountable for future attacks by the Lebanese terrorist organization on Israeli territory.

Reuters quoted White House spokesman Robert Gibbs as saying that talks between Obama and Hariri would touch upon a "broad range of mutual goals in support of Lebanon's sovereignty and independence, regional peace and security."

Hariri will begin his first visit to the US in official capacity on Monday.
