 Hariri: Saudi Crown Prince Plays Pivotal Role in Lebanon’s Stability

Lebanon’s Prime Minister-designate Saad Hariri said on Tuesday that the role of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Defense, was “central to the stability of Lebanon.”

“The depth of the relations between our two countries, and the support that King Salman and the Crown Prince bestowed on Lebanon obliges us all to double our efforts to improve relations between Saudi Arabia and Lebanon,” Hariri said during a visit by a delegation of the Saudi-Lebanese Business Council.

“Everybody knows the level of support I receive personally from Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.”

“In fact, the Crown Prince is playing a pivotal role in supporting peace and stability in Lebanon on the political, economic, social and security levels,” the premier-designate added.

He underlined in this regard Prince Mohammed’s efforts to ensure the success of the “CEDRE” donors’ conference in Paris, as well as the Rome Conference to support the Lebanese army and Internal Security Forces.

He also called on the Council to intensify its work to increase investment between the two countries in order to strengthen trade and economic exchange between Riyadh and Beirut.
