Hariri: Lebanon's Stance at Riyadh Summit Stems from Oath of Office, Ministerial Statement

W300

Prime Minister Saad Hariri emphasized on Wednesday that Lebanon's position during the Riyadh summit stems from President Michel Aoun's oath of office and the ministerial statement of the government.

“Lebanon's position, reflected through our national unity, stems from the oath of office and the ministerial statement. Positive atmospheres and distancing Lebanon from problems around us is crucial,” said Hariri during a cabinet meeting at the Presidential Palace.

He stressed that the country's participation in the conference was a normal procedure, “we are always working on restoring our relations with all countries, this is important for us,” said Hariri.

"We have to acknowledge the changes happening in the region. We must distance Lebanon from that because we do not want to be part of any conflict. We do not want Lebanon to support one side against another, it is our major policy," Hariri stressed.

The PM pointed out that he had discussed the situation in Lebanon and the region with several country leaders on the sidelines of the summit, and invited them to visit Lebanon.

He also noted his agreement with Saudi officials to hold the Lebanese-Saudi Joint Economic Committee during the holy month of Ramadan.

On the thorny electoral law issue, Hariri said: “There must be a way to agree on a new law. No one would accept vacuum or the 1960 (electoral law). I believe there is a real chance to agree on one.”

and how is having Hezbollah which is part of your government waging wars in Syria, Iraq and Yemen accomplishing what you just said?

The Saudi's keep undermining Lebanon...the fact Lebanon's President was not invited is enough to understand their sinister behavior.

Either Lebanon bows to the Saudi will or else.
Hariri needs to clarify his true identity..is he Lebanese or Saudi?

the summit invited heads of states that are intent on fighting terrorism; aoun is not. He is allied with a terrorist group and he became president as a result of that alliance.

So according to you Lebanon's army should not be armed, because they are fighting hand in hand with HA
well according to your twisted logic anyways.

Monsieur Roar,

Les puissances islamiques étaient conviées en Arabie. Est-ce que Michel Aoun est musulman? Vous confirmez donc qu'il s'est converti au chiisme secrètement comme nous le pensions.

No country in this Planet really respects KSA and its Policies against human rights and Freedoms. They wear weird old clothes and pretend to be decent, but they access porn websites 24 hours a day! And always spend vacations in France and other countries where they can find Prostitution and Drugs... What a perverted Muslims Saudis are! Lol....

Power corrupts any human being. Even the Holy Pope (whom I admire, respect greatly) is in his own way corrupt because of his power. Nobody is spared! Corruption can take many forms, it isn't always about dough.

what is your measure of a good Christian? you and your fake Christian aliases flamethrower etc?

When somebody is against your iranian farsi sectarian militia he is automatically labeled by you as a ISIS supporter and therefore he cannot be Christian. What do you know about Christians?? Even the Aounis who are politically allied with your militia hate what you stand for and look down at you as savages.

Barrymore, where & when did I ever say you can't make your voice heard regarding any matter? what I have always claimed is if you have a valid argument based on facts then put them forward in a civilized manner, something most on here are unable to do.

You guys claim to be on the good side & mowaten mystic etc are on the bad side....just look at the discourse between them & you lot.
You guys wouldn't know how to debate with any decency, in fact every sentence you guys start with is name calling etc..

Just watch the two sides debates & it becomes very clear who is debating & who is throwing trash without reason.

spoken like a true follower of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Yes you a true Christian indeed...you have more hate than any daesh representative but use the Christian faith to pour the vile of your tongue on the forum.

sorry, i misinterpreted your comment above. You were debating and presenting an argument based on fact and you were not name calling and insulting.

Spare us your iranian BS.

Thumb the_roar 3 years

barrymore, either you're in denial or just unable to see the truth.

Who presented a debate & who chose to respond with personal hate comments?

once again just in case you're slow, I put forward my post & was responded to without any decent discourse or debate, but all personal attacks.....now where are you & the so called Christian to condemn the party at fault?

you guys are so programmed to hate ...but hey you represent the good side right?
just take a look at the names you guys make up...nice language & nice discourse to match..

one only has to look at how you guys behave to see which side is the bad.
