Lebanese PM Hariri Formally Withdraws His Resignation

BEIRUT – Lebanon’s Prime Minister on Tuesday officially withdrew his resignation at an extraordinary cabinet meeting in which all Lebanese political forces pledged their commitment to tackling regional conflicts.

Saad Hariri, who shocked Lebanon after announcing his resignation on Nov. 4, called for taking actions to make his country avoid regional conflicts and maintain stability.

“We, as a government, are responsible first and foremost for protecting the country from the dangers it faces,” Hariri said, according to Lebanese state news agency NNA.

The prime minister pointed out in a statement at the end of the meeting that the cabinet thanked him for the withdrawal of his resignation.

He stressed that all Lebanese political groups, including Hezbollah, are committed to maintaining good relations with their Arab neighbors and not interfering in their internal affairs.

The withdrawal of the resignation had been agreed Monday night and sent to the ministers, who announced their acceptance before media prior to the cabinet meeting chaired by Lebanese President Michel Aoun.

Hariri resigned on Nov. 4 on an unannounced visit to Riyadh, denouncing Iran’s interference in Lebanese politics through Hezbollah.

The resignation caused a national and international political crisis due to the long stay of Hariri in Riyadh, to the extent that Aoun considered Hariri detained in Saudi Arabia.

The crisis was solved after French President, Emmanuel Macron, invited Hariri to visit Paris on Nov. 18 in an effort to defuse the growing tension over the prime minister’s continued presence in Riyadh.

The Lebanese prime minister returned to Beirut on Nov. 21 and made his resignation pending, awaiting political negotiations.
