Hossein Amirabdollahian said at a press conference capping a day-long visit to Beirut that the US had asked Tehran to request Hezbollah "not to get widely, fully involved in this war against" Israel.

Amirabdollahian on Saturday warned Israel against taking any steps towards a broader war against Lebanon, adding that Iran saw a political solution as the only way to end the Gaza conflict.

He told a news conference earlier on Saturday alongside his Lebanese counterpart, Abdallah Bou Habib, that Tehran was in talks with Saudi Arabia on a political solution to hostilities in Gaza.

Amirabdollahian is set to travel on to Syria, according to Syrian media, and will meet top officials there.
