Grand Mufti Sheikh Abdul Latif Daryan on Tuesday described ex-PM Saad Hariri's withdrawal from political life as "regrettable" and "painful."

In a statement, Daryan lauded the efforts that Hariri exerted while performing his "national missions" and his "constant cooperation with Dar al-Fatwa."

Expressing his concern over the developments in the Lebanese arena, the mufti called for "further Islamic and national unity."

He also said that Lebanon's ties with Arabs, especially Saudi Arabia, must be at "the best and highest level," stressing that "no Lebanese group should harm these brotherly relations."
