Saad Hariri returns to Lebanon after shock resignation

Hariri was leading a coalition government with his political opponents in the militant group Hezbollah when he stunned Lebanon by announcing his resignation in a televised statement from Saudi Arabia on November 4.

Saad Hariri has returned to Lebanon for the first time since his shock resignation as Lebanon's prime minister more than two weeks ago.

Hariri arrived at Cairo International Airport, where he was received by Egypt's health minister, Lebanese ambassador to Cairo and Egypt's ambassador to Beirut, his press office said.

"We, and he, desire to see stability in Lebanon".

Al-Akhbar noted that negotiations were held between Egypt on one hand and UAE and Saudi on the other in order to preserve the political settlement reached by all the Lebanese parties and supported by the Arab League, according to which PM Hariri keeps in his post.

In Lebanon, the army chief called on troops to stand firm against any attempt to incite strife in the country amid the crisis triggered by Hariri's resignation.
