Iran says does not interfere in Lebanese state affairs

The Lebanese patriarch also held two separate meetings with Saudi Crown Prince Mohamed bin Salman and resigned Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri.

"What's at stake is Mr Hariri being able to return home freely to clarify his situation in line with the Lebanese constitution", Philippe told parliament, saying his resignation, announced in Saudi Arabia, had caused "a period of uncertainty".

Amid "the state of deadlock" in Lebanon following the resignation of its prime minister, the prelates said they were concerned that he had not yet returned to Lebanon, stressing that this was "necessary for the sake of dignity, sovereignty and stability".

Lebanon has insisted the resignation was forced by Hariri's Saudi patrons and that he is being kept in the kingdom against his will. Hariri denied those reports in a Sunday TV interview and said he'll return to Lebanon within days.


Hariri lashed out at Lebanon's militant Hezbollah movement in his resignation speech and said he feared for his safety.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Hariri's resignation should serve as "a wake-up call to the worldwide community to take action against the Iranian aggression that is trying to turn Syria into a second Lebanon". His wife and children have been living in Saudi Arabia for years.

Cars pass next to a poster depicting Saad al-Hariri, who has resigned as Lebanon's prime minister, in Beirut, Lebanon, Lebanon, November 13, 2017. The visit aims to rally diplomatic support and explain Lebanon's predicament following Hariri's move.
