Saudis Tell Hariri Will Attend Lebanon Support Conferences

Saudi officials have assured Prime Minister Saad Hariri that the kingdom will attend the upcoming international meetings that are aimed at supporting Lebanon, a media report said.

“Hariri’s visit to Saudi Arabia is part of its keenness on supporting the Lebanese state and its legitimate institutions as well as Lebanon’s continuation of the policy of distancing itself from regional conflicts,” official sources in Beirut told al-Hayat newspaper.

“The first outcome of the Saudi initiative towards Lebanon and Hariri’s visit to Riyadh is the affirmation by the officials there that Saudi Arabia’s representatives will attend the international support meetings for Lebanon that will be held in Rome in mid-March and in Paris on April 6 in addition to the Brussels conference for aiding Syrian refugees,” the sources added.
