Hariri Says 'Doing Very Well', Will Return within Days

إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

Prime Minister Saad Hariri announced Tuesday that he is “doing very well” and that he will return from Saudi Arabia to Lebanon within days.

“Folks, I'm doing very well, and God willing I will return within days, so let's be patient,” Hariri tweeted in Lebanese dialect, in his first tweet since November 6.

“My family are in their home in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, the kingdom of goodness,” Hariri added.

It was not immediately clear if Hariri was responding to remarks voiced earlier in the day by EU diplomatic chief Federica Mogherini.

According to Lebanon's National News Agency, Mogherini said during a meeting with Foreign Minister Jebran Bassil in Brussels that there is a need for the return of “Hariri and his family” to Lebanon in the coming days in order to fortify internal stability and national unity in Lebanon.

In his first TV interview since he announced a surprise resignation from Riyadh on November 4, Hariri said Sunday he will return to Lebanon to seek a new settlement with President Michel Aoun and Iran-backed Hizbullah.

Hariri, looking downcast and tired, denied he was being held against his will in the kingdom and said he was compelled to resign to save Lebanon from imminent dangers, which he didn't specify.

He held back tears at one point and repeated several times that he resigned to create a "positive shock" and draw attention to the danger of siding with Iran in regional conflicts.

Hariri sounded less belligerent in Sunday's interview than he did during the resignation announcement.

A political crisis has gripped Lebanon since Hariri read his televised resignation from Saudi Arabia in which he accused Iran of meddling in Lebanon in a vicious tirade that was uncharacteristic of the usually soft-spoken premier.

Aoun and other Lebanese officials have refused to accept Hariri's resignation until he returns to the country.

Lebanese officials have insisted the resignation was forced by Hariri's Saudi patrons and that he is being kept in the kingdom against his will. Hariri denied this on Sunday, stressing that he is “free.”

رئيس النظام السوري البائد بشار الأسد: الحريري ليس سيد نفسه

متناسياً فقدان النظام السوري البائد للحد الأدنى من السيادة والغياب التام لإستقلال سوريا جراء سياسته الإجرامية، إعتبر رئيس النظام السوري بشار الأسد أن رئيس الحكومة سعد الحريري ليس سيد نفسه وهو أقيل ولم يستقل.

فهل يحق لمن فقد شرعيته ونظامه الكلام عن سيادة الآخرين؟

Here is the latest joke brought to you by Bassil:

باسيل: لبنان لا يريد التدخل في شؤون الدول الاخرى… وسياسته الخارجية مستقلة

Only when Lebanese finally recognize we are under Hizbollah occupation, only then there will be hope for a solution and a better future. Hizb is nothing but an extension to Iranian radicals and Assad criminal regimes, and Hizb itself is a criminal terrorist organization that has assassinated the best among Lebanese. Hizb occupation has paralyzed, radicalized and impoverished Lebanon. It has eroded our sovereignty, isolated us, and destroyed our economy. No Lebanese independence, dignity or sovereignty as long as Hizb is armed and dangerous working for the interest of criminal regimes.

Yet, you call Hezbollah an occupation force.
How come they sharing the power in the government with both Hariri and Geagea then?

If we were indeed occupiers, then how come we allow you to rule alongside us?

Hezbollah is a Lebanese party, with ties to Iran yes.
All Hezbollah members have Lebanese citizenship, yet you still call them foreign occupiers.

Mystic:

Assad your beloved president recently said in a speech addressing the Syrian parliament that carrying citizenship of a country does not mean you are a citizen of that country but those who serve the country are citizens of that country even if they are foreigners.

If you apply that to you and hezbollah, you serve Iran and as such according to your president you are Iranians not Lebanese.

So an Israeli citizen such as yourself, wants to lecture me about being Lebanese?

I support the group that expelled your kind off from Lebanon, and I will remain loyal to the Lebanese resistance group that defended Lebanon against Israeli and ISIS/Nusra salafis till the day I die.

If Hezbollah was an occupation force, then they would not share power with opposing parties.

"Hezbollah is a Lebanese party"

what a comedian;)!

A 'Lebanese' party whose terrorist leader says all its money, food, weapons, rockets, and resources come from Iran. This is the definition of a Lebanese party according to the shia Iranian.

Hariri is more popular now than he have ever been, every Lebanese agree for his immediate return and to end the saudi house arrest.

if iu not arrested, pray to be arrested...because if what iu did was not imposed by the Saudis then iu are a terrorist...

While Patriarch Al Rahi says after meeting Hariri in Riyadh he is totally convinced of his resignation, Aoun sends his office boy Bassil on a European tour trying to convince European nations that Harir's resignation is fake and he is under house arrest.

Regarding Harari's return, as the saying goes, "I'll believe it when I see it"
