Israel's PM Netanyahu to Meet with French President Macron on Iran

Lebanon's former PM to meet Egypt's President al-Sisi

With the Egyptian president, Hariri discussed the political crisis set off by his resignation - el-Sissi and France's Macron are reportedly trying to mediate a solution that would involve rolling back Hariri's resignation.

President Michel Aoun is meanwhile "exerting all efforts possible to relaunch the political and constitutional process in the country, leading serious negotiations away from the media spotlight to create a climate that would keep Hariri in his post", al-Akhbar reported.

Hariri is still expected to return to Lebanon, more than two weeks after his shock resignation from Saudi Arabia.

Israel's PM Netanyahu to Meet with French President Macron on Iran

Okab Saqr, a member of parliament for Hariri's Future Movement, said after Hariri's visit to France he would have "a small Arab tour" before traveling to Beirut.

Hariri had been in Paris since Saturday when he met French President Emmanuel Macron.

According to Lebanon's Almustaqbal newspaper, which cites the Lebanese prime minister's press service, Saad Hariri will meet Egyptian President Abdel Fattah Sisi during his upcoming visit to Egypt.


A dual Saudi-Lebanese national with vast business interests in the kingdom, Hariri told reporters after talks with the Egyptian leader: "Inshallah (God willing), tomorrow's Independence Day in Lebanon will be a feast for all Lebanese". Aoun, a Christian, is a political ally of Hezbollah.

Aoun has called Hariri a Saudi hostage and refused to accept his resignation unless he returns to Lebanon.

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