Lebanon likely to ink economic deals with Saudi




(MENAFN) On Wednesday, Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri said that he had held an "excellent" meeting with Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman and anticipated Lebanon to sign economic deals with Saudi Arabia soon.

"We will see very soon certain agreements that will be signed with Saudi Arabia vis-a-vis different sectors of the economy, whether it is industry, and tourism and services," Hariri said during a news conference in Beirut without giving further details.

"God willing in the coming few weeks this is what we are trying to work towards," he said.

Relations have been tensed between Lebanon and Saudi Arabia since last November when Hariri abruptly resigned from his post as prime minister during a visit to the Kingdom.

Lebanese officials said at the time that Saudi Arabia had forced him to step down-which Riyadh denied.
