BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:10 P.M.) – In his first interview from Saudi Arabia since his resignation, Saad Hariri told Future TV his reasons for leaving Lebanon abruptly.

“My resignation was in Lebanon’s best interest,” Hariri began.

The former prime minister would then tell Future TV that he will return to Lebanon and that he is not afraid of losing his life, despite the fact he previously claimed he was afraid for his life before resigning.

Hariri would then praise Saudi Arabia and King Salman, adding that the latter views him as one of his sons.

“King Salman considers me a son and I respect the crown prince and he also respects me. I agree with them on a lot of issues and I disagree on a lot of issues.”

Following his praise of Saudi Arabia, Hariri claimed the Syrian government wants him dead, along with several other parties.

“The Syrian regime does not want me alive and a lot of parties do not want Saad Hariri,” he told Future TV.

Hariri has been a long standing opponent of the Syrian government and has called for the overthrow of Syrian President, Bashar Al-Assad, on a number of occasions.

What a joke that Hariri is? Imagine the leader of a country hiding under the robes of another!
