Hariri: Pending Resignation an Opportunity to Realize that Dissociation Policy Protects Lebanonإقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية
Prime Minister Saad Hariri stressed that his decision to put his resignation on hold paves way for political parties to realize that implementing the dissociation policy protects Lebanon from regional problems, Hariri's media office said in a statement on Friday.
“The option of delaying (the resignation) allows somewhere for all political parties to make sure that distancing (Lebanon) oneself from everything that is happening around us is the basic policy that protects Lebanon from any problems in the region,” said Hariri.
Stressing the need for dialogue, he added: “We have to sit for dialogue in order to reach the shore's safety and preserve the safety of Lebanon, the Lebanese and our brethren relations with the entire Arab states, which too have the right to protect their own safety.
“We want to maintain the best relations with Saudi Arabia,” stressed the Premier.
Hariri's remarks came during a meeting with Grand Mufti of the Republic Abdul Latif Deryan heading a delegation of muftis from different Lebanese regions on Thursday.
