Hariri to visit Egypt, expected return to Lebanon on Wednesday

Hariri to visit Egypt, expected return to Lebanon on Wednesday

"Saad Hariri arrived in Cairo on Tuesday evening from Paris to meet President Sisi, and he is scheduled to return to Lebanon on Wednesday", MENA state news agency said.

Hariri is expected to return to Lebanon in the coming hours, his first trip home since his sudden resignation as prime minister on November 4 plunged the country into political crisis. He is expected to return to Beirut on Wednesday. His press office said he was traveling to Beirut.

Aoun went far in considering the resignation forced on Hariri by the Saudis and that he was kept under house arrest, accusing the kingdom of committing an act of aggression against Lebanon. The Shiite militant group is a key member of Hariri's ruling coalition and Lebanon's single most dominant force.

Aoun has called Hariri a Saudi hostage and refused to accept his resignation unless he returns to Lebanon. Aoun, a Christian, is a political ally of Hezbollah.




Hariri's media team announced on his Twitter account that he had flown to Cyprus instead.

Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi together with France's leader, Emmanuel Macron, is reportedly trying to mediate a solution that would involve rolling back Hariri's resignation.

Hariri, a Sunni Muslim, is a long-time ally of Saudi Arabia.

The crisis has thrust Lebanon into the regional rivalry pitting Saudi Arabia and its allies against a bloc led by Iran, which includes the heavily armed Lebanese Shi'ite Hezbollah group. But he also renewed his pledge to come to the rescue of Gulf Arab allies and benefactors if their security was directly threatened.
