Saudi Envoy Says 'Lebanon Safe' for Tourism


Saudi charge d'affaires in Lebanon Walid al-Bukhari has reassured that “Lebanon is safe” for tourism.

“Saudi Arabia has a constantly renewing diplomatic thought and every ambassador who took part in today's event is sending a message that Lebanon is safe and has achieved security standards under which tourism in this country should be reconsidered” by any boycotting country, Bukhari said during a motorcycle tour sponsored by the Saudi embassy.

Lebanese lawmakers also participated in the tour, titled 'Sport for a Better Tomorrow', which aims to promote awareness against drugs.

The tour had started from Beirut's King Salman Avenue before reaching Mukhtara in Mount Lebanon's Chouf region.

It’s no safe enough for Lebanese expats, why would it be safe enough for saudis?

We’re an occupied country at war with Israel, Syria and Hizbalot.
