Lebanon Crisis: President Macron Invites Ex-Premier Hariri to France – Politics

Wednesday, November 15th, 2017 | bitcoin updates

French President Emmanuel Macron has invited Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri "to spend a few days with his family" in France. Macron told a group of journalists on Wednesday evening on the sidelines of the UN climate summit in Bonn. It is "not at all" an exile in France, added Macron. The Elysée Palace had previously announced that Hariri would arrive in France "in the coming days". The president spoke with Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman and Hariri, the Elysée Palace said in a brief statement on Wednesday evening. Hariri had announced his resignation from Saudi Arabia earlier this month – he has close ties with the country. He cited as a reason a murder plot by the Lebanese Shiite militia Hezbollah, which is supported by Iran and Syria. This triggered the 47-year-old speculation that his withdrawal from Riyadh was forced to create tension with Hezbollah. The President of Lebanon, Michel Aoun, claimed Wednesday that Hariri is being held in Saudi Arabia. "Premier Hariri's non-return to his homeland twelve days after his resignation is unjustifiable, so we consider him arrested and detained," Aoun said via Twitter. Lebanon will do its best to get Hariri free again. He did not provide evidence of his claim. Before the invitation to Hariri, Macron urged that the Lebanese prime minister confirm his announced resignation in his homeland. France supported the independence and autonomy of the Middle East, said the French government spokesman Christophe Castaner after the government meeting. Castaner said: "The (French) President wants the Lebanese Prime Minister to confirm (and) confirm his desire to resign in Lebanon, if that is his decision." Meanwhile, Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian began a two-day visit to Saudi Arabia. Arabia, where, according to French diplomatic circles, a meeting with Hariri was planned. In addition, Le Drian wanted to meet Crown Prince Mohammed. Macron had already seen Prince Mohammed last week. France, as a former mandate power, has particularly close ties with Lebanon. (dpa, AFP)
