Aoun Receives Greeting Cables from Saudi King, Crown Prince
President Michel Aoun on Tuesday received cables greeting him on Lebanon's Independence Day from Saudi Arabia's King Salman bin Abdul Aziz and Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.
The letters come amid high tensions between Lebanon and the kingdom over Hizbullah's role in the country and the region and in the wake of Prime Minister Saad Hariri's shock resignation from Riyadh.
King Salman wished good health and happiness to the president and advancement and prosperity to the Lebanese people.
Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman for his part wished “further advancement and prosperity for the Lebanese government and people.”
