Saudi envoy invites Lebanon's Hariri to kingdom: PM office

Hariri & Saudi envoy Saudi Delegation in Beirut for Talks to Improve Lebanese-Saudi Relations
Kenny Thornton | 02 March, 2018, 20:46

United Nations peacekeeping top official welcomed Monday the increasing Lebanese army presence in southern Lebanon during a meeting with Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri.

After his return, Hariri's coalition government, which includes Hizbollah, reaffirmed a state policy of staying out of conflicts in the Arab world.

He came accompanied by Saudi Chargé d'Affaires Walid al-Bukhari and Saudi Ambassador to Lebanon Walid al-Yaacoub. Al-Aloula has also visited the tomb of Hariri's slain father, ex-PM Rafik Hariri, added the daily.

Saudi Arabia accuses the heavily armed Hezbollah of waging war across the Middle East as agents of Iran. At the time of his resignation, Hariri made this statement according to the BBC, "Today I presented my resignation to his Excellency the president, and he asked me to temporarily suspend submitting it and to put it on hold ahead of further consultations on the reasons for it".

Teacher who fired gun in class once claimed he had woman killed
A Dalton student, Chondi Chastain, tells the AP that Davidson had told students he thought arming teachers was a bad idea. Luckily no one was hurt and Davidson was taken into custody approximately half an hour later.

Aloula paid a two-day visit to Beirut, during which he held talks with Lebanese officials concerning Beirut-Riyadh relations and regional developments.

He later revoked his resignation amid accusations by Lebanese officials for Saudi Arabia of forcing Hariri to resign. The Rome II Conference will begin on March 15 in the Italian capital and aims to garner support for the Lebanese Army and security forces.

A third global conference, set to be held in Brussels later in the spring, will focus on support for Syrian refugees and countries hosting large numbers of displaced people, including Lebanon.

Hariri is also set to chair a meeting Monday of a nine-man ministerial committee tasked with studying the provisions of the 2018 draft state budget. Despite the school setting, the discussions with the students did not veer away from politics.
