BEIRUT, LEBANON (1030 P.M.) – Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri issued a statement on Sunday in solidarity with the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
Hariri’s statement said he stands in solidarity with Saudi Arabia “in the face of the campaigns targeting it.”
“The status of Saudi Arabia in the Arab and international communities places it among the central countries entrusted with the stability of the region and the support of the Arab causes,” he continued.
“The campaigns against it constitute a violation of this stability and an unacceptable call to drag the region towards further negative developments,” he added.
Hariri has been an ally of Saudi Arabia since he entered politics; his family’s company also does a great deal of business inside the Gulf nation.
