The pontiff was greeted by President Michel Suleiman and his wife at the entrance of the palace.
Following the meeting with Suleiman, the pope also held talks with Prime Minister Najib Miqati and Speaker Nabih Berri.
He later met with Lebanon’s religious leaders representing the different sects that constitute Lebanon’s religious makeup.
The pontiff arrived in Lebanon on Friday bringing a clear message on the conflict in neighboring Syria, calling for an end to arms imports.
