Lebanese foreign minister says hopes Hariri returns to Beirut - RIA

Saad al-Hariri, a Saudi ally, resigned as Lebanon's prime minister on November 4, citing an assassination plot and accusing Iran and Hezbollah of sowing strife in the region.

Hezbollah has said Saudi Arabia forced Hariri to resign in order to bring down his coalition government, which includes the group.

"After talks with Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia Mohammed bin Salman and Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri, the President of the Republic [Emmanuel Macron] invited Saad Hariri and his family to France", the Elysee Palace said in a statement. Ironically, despite the continuous strife, the 'Switzerland of the East', or as Beirut was known as the 'Paris of the Middle East', has retained an irresistible charm for outsiders to try and retain a strategic foothold in the war-torn country, at the cost of Lebanese unity.

The official, speaking on condition of anonymity, accused Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman of treating Jordan with contempt. "He deals with Jordanians and the Palestinian Authority as if they are the servants and he is the master and we have to follow what he does".

Hariri "wanted to mediate between Iran and Saudi Arabia, and we welcomed it", Velayati said.

A sad and weary Hariri was emotional at times in the broadcast, appearing to hold back tears and sparking sympathy for him. "We need leaders who are free to make their own choices and speak freely".

He also expressed gratitude to Saudi Arabia for "decades of support" for Lebanon's national institutions. Jordan did, however, close the office of Al Jazeera, the Qatari television network which Saudi has called on Doha to shut down. The resolution specifically condemned the North Korean government for diverting resources to its military - namely its nuclear weapon and ballistic missile programs - instead of providing aid to its population.

A presidential source later confirmed the former prime minister would arrive in France "in the coming days".

But with growing speculation that Hariri was no longer a free agent, it kicked off intense diplomatic activity amid concern for Lebanon's hard-won and fragile political stability.

Earlier Wednesday, Lebanon's president accused Saudi Arabia of detaining Hariri and asked UN Security Council countries and European governments to intervene.

Both Hariri and Riyadh have denied allegations he was being held against his will, with the Lebanese leader on Friday dismissing as "rumours" all speculation about his situation.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu reacted to the dramatic resignation two week ago, saying it was "a wake-up call to the international community to take action against Iranian aggression". Please be fully informed regarding the risks and costs associated with trading the financial markets, it is one of the riskiest investment forms possible.

"The Saudis have learned to live with limited Egyptian involvement in Yemen", he added.

Last Friday, Nasrallah warned about a new Saudi-Israeli plot in the region and said Hariri is now a hostage in Saudi Arabia.
