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.
يا جماعة انا بألف خير وان شاء الله انا راجع هل يومين خلينا نروق ، وعيلتي قاعدة ببلدها المملكة العربية السعودية مملكة الخير .— Saad Hariri (@saadhariri) November 14, 2017
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.
