Hariri says Hezbollah still committed to political settlement and Saudis want a stable Lebanon

Hariri threatens to resignLebanon’s Prime Minister Saad Hariri stressed Monday that Hezbollah is “still committed” to the political settlement that led to the election of Lebanese President Michel Aoun and the formation of his government.

Hariri told reporters on his way back from Saudi Arabia, where he attended the recently concluded Arab League Summit, that Saudi Arabia is keen to see stability in Lebanon.

The Gulf kingdom supports Lebanon politically and economically and Hezbollah is still committed to the political settlement, said the prime minister.

“In the next parliament, the sizes of blocs will be close and will not differ much,” he added, reassuring that the ban on the travel of Gulf tourists to Lebanon will be lifted after the elections in May.
