Report: Hariri to Meet State Heads on Sidelines of World Cup Opening in Moscow

What would World Leaders discuss with him in a 5 minute meeting on the sidelines of such a sporting event that he could not accomplish in a phone call.

Any excuse to waste taxpayers money

I wasn’t aware that Lebanon qualified for the World Cup. Let me quickly book my tickets then!

The American and European governments won’t be attending, so who’s Saad going to sit with? Rouhani and Assad?
