Hariri reassures Lebanon, tweets that he will return in next two days

Saad Hariri (AFP)
BEIRUT: Saad Al-Hariri, Lebanon’s Prime Minister who resigned from his post on Nov. 4th from Saudi Arabia, said he is fine and will return to Lebanon in the next two days.
Writing on Twitter, Hariri urged Lebanese to remain calm, adding that his family would “stay in its country, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia,” he said.

Hariri’s announcement comes after Lebanon’s Maronite Christian Patriarch Bechara Boutros Al-Rai said he would return home “as soon as possible.”
Rai's remarks came after a meeting with Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman on his second day of a first visit to Saudi Arabia. Rai also held talks with Hariri, who abruptly announced his resignation on Nov. 4 from Riyadh.
