Saudi Ambassador to Lebanon Ali Awadh Asiri stressed that the critical conditions in the region and Lebanon compelled him to extend his stay in Beirut.

“King Abdullah is keen to provide Lebanon with the needed support amid the delicate developments,” Asiri told al-Liwaa newspaper published on Friday.

He pointed out that he will currently stay in Beirut to follow on situation and the constitutional deadlines in Lebanon.

Media reports said on Thursday that the outgoing Saudi ambassador will extend his tenure in Lebanon although he made his farewell visits on Lebanese officials.

Asiri was appointed as the Saudi Ambassador to Pakistan.

On Tuesday, Prime Minister Tammam Salam threw a luncheon banquet in honor of Asiri. It was attended by senior officials, ministers and former President Michel Suleiman.

Are we talking about the same Saudi Arabia that pledged 4 billion dollars to support the Lebanese army?

As hard as you try to mask it, still everything that comes out of your mouth is sectarian.
