BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:00 P.M.) – Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri is on the way to Riyadh this afternoon for a meeting with several Saudi officials, the premier’s office said on Thursday.

Hariri will be meeting with several high ranking Saudi officials, including Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman.

This will be Hariri’s first official visit to Saudi Arabia since he was summoned to Riyadh in 2017.

While the details from that debacle are still not clear, it was rumored that Hariri was forced to stay in Riyadh against his will and then release a statement after several world leaders expressed concern over his well-being.

Hariri temporarily resigned from his post as Prime Minister during his time in Riyadh; he would later retain the premiership once he returned to Beirut.

Hariri to Salman, “I’ve done everything you’ve asked of me, even risking Lebanon’s security.
Can I have my two youngest children back now, pretty please?”.
