“All (the government’s) political components decide to dissociate themselves from all rows, disputes, wars or the internal affairs of brother Arab countries, in classify to preserve Lebanon’s economic and political relations,” Hariri said.
His acquiescence offer thrust Lebanon back into a regional tussle between Riyadh and its channel regional foe, Iran.
Lebanese officials said Saudi Arabia had coerced Hariri, a long-time confederate of the kingdom, into resigning and held him there against his will until an intervention by France led to his indemnification to Lebanon. Saudi Arabia denies this.
