(AhlulBayt News Agency) - Lebanese President Michel Aoun said that Saad al-Hariri will “certainly” remain prime minister and Lebanon’s political crisis will be resolved in a few days, an Italian newspaper reported on Wednesday.
“We have just finished talks with all the political forces, within and outside government. There is a broad agreement,” the daily La Stampa quoted him as saying during a visit to Italy.
Hariri resigned in a televised statement while he was in Saudi Arabia on Nov. 4.
Aoun did not accept his resignation, accusing Saudi Arabia of holding Hariri in Riyadh and forcing him to step down. Hariri eventually returned to Beirut on Nov. 22 and postponed his resignation.
Asked about that demand, Aoun said: “Hezbollah has fought against ISIS terrorists in Lebanon and abroad. But when the war against terrorism is finished, their fighters will come back to the country,” La Stampa reported.
