Hariri: Saudi Wants Lebanon Stability, Hizbullah Committed to Settlement

إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

Prime Minister Saad Hariri has stressed that Saudi Arabia is keen on Lebanon's stability and that Hizbullah is “still committed” to the political settlement that led to the election of President Michel Aoun and the formation of his government.

“The kingdom wants Lebanon's stability and it was present at the Rome and Paris conferences. It is backing Lebanon politically and economically and Hizbullah is still committed to the settlement,” Hariri told reporters aboard a plane that carried him to Beirut from Saudi Arabia where he attended the 29th Arab Summit along with President Michel Aoun.

Separately, Hariri noted that “electoral alliances are different than political alliances.”

“In the next parliament, the sizes of blocs will be close and will not differ much,” the premier added.

Hariri also reassured that the ban on the travel of Gulf tourists to Lebanon will be lifted after the May elections.

" and Hizbullah is still committed to the settlement,” Hariri told reporters

Is Hariri telling us that hezbollah is no longer in Syria, Iraq and Yemen?

What a joke this guy has become.

We thought he was going to be Lebanese Kennedy, he turned out to be a dirty khomeynist.

Hizbullah is committed to settlements.. on the nosey Mr PM!

Just like Israel is committed to settlements in occupied Palestine, Hizbullah is committed to settlements in Jbeil, in Matn, in Baabda, in Haddath, in Jezzine, in Ftou7 Keserwan and even in Keserwan proper. It's within Hezbollah's preposterous belief that these were Shiite lands. It's what they did in what is now Greater Da7ieh. Once this is accomplished they'll more into other regions.

Wizz your notes are quite correct and the predictions are inevitable. Our quisling president was hurt when he was informed at the outcome remarks of the Paris Donor meeting. Lebanon was ranked on of the highest and most corrupt nations. This is a reflection of our leadership whom we the Lebanese have expected and in many cases sanctioned. In the absence of patriotism each member of our parliament has sold out to some entity and will continue to do so as the money is readily available. So yes these elections are sold out to subscribers and the final will be the status quo. Until the nation stands up and throws these corrupt leaders of their seats nothing will change but the debt will increase while the standard of living decreases. Hariri should be real proud of himself, his father died for Lebanon and now hes living for himself.
