Lebanese interior minister visits Saudi Arabia

JEDDAH: Saudi Deputy Interior Minister Dr. Nasser bin Abdul Aziz Al-Daoud received Lebanese Interior Minister Nohad Machnouk on his arrival in Jeddah on Monday at the King Abdul Aziz International Airport.

Saudi Arabia and Lebanon enjoy strong friendly ties. Recently, a street in Lebanon was named after King Salman to honor the long and historical ties between the two countries.

Saudi Minister Plenipotentiary Walid Bukhari described the naming of the road as “proof of the Lebanese people’s deep love for the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, who embodies peace and moderation.”

He added: “This wonderful initiative reminds us of Prime Minister Rafik Hariri, who was martyred meters from here.

“I am very happy to see this country safe, stable, and secure...the gem of moderation that brings together people who carry tolerant messages.

“Saudi Arabia has always been, and will always be, the guarantor of security, safety, and stability in Lebanon, and will always protect its unity.”
