Saudi to receive Lebanon's FM

(MENAFN) On Tuesday, Lebanon's Prime Minister Saad Hariri headed to Saudi Arabia for the second time since his shock resignation in the kingdom last year, MEE reported.
"Hariri headed to Saudi Arabia for a visit expected to last a few days," his office said in a statement late Tuesday.

It is the premier's second visit to Saudi Arabia since his alleged detention in Riyadh after an earlier trip in February.

On 4 November, Hariri stated he was stepping down in a televised address from Riyadh, sparking concerns that he was being detained against his will.

After French mediation, however, he rescinded his resignation the following month and was named premier for a third term after Lebanon's first parliamentary polls in nine years.
