President Michel Aoun on Monday said “efforts are underway to address the situation that erupted between Lebanon, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and a number of Gulf countries.”
He added that the efforts are based on “Lebanon’s keenness to establish the best relations with the brotherly Arab countries, especially KSA and the Gulf nations.”
Aoun voiced his remarks in a meeting with Lebanon’s ambassadors to KSA, Bahrain and Kuwait – Fawzi Kabbara, Milad Nammour and Hadi Hashem.
The Presidency said the three envoys briefed the President on “the developments related to the Lebanese ties with the three countries in light of the latest events and the measures that these countries resorted to after recalling their ambassadors from Beirut and asking the Lebanese ambassadors to leave.”
The three envoys also put Aoun in the picture of the situations of Lebanese expats in the three aforementioned countries.
