Egypt's Sisi meets Lebanese PM Hariri in Cairo

Hariri, a long-time ally of Saudi Arabia, left Lebanon on November 3 and announced his shock resignation from the Saudi capital the next day, accusing Iran and the Hezbollah militant group backed by Tehran of destabilizing his country. He thanked Macron, who has been mediating as part of French efforts to try to ease tensions across the region, for his help.

Aoun went far in considering the resignation forced on Hariri by the Saudis and that he was kept under house arrest, accusing the kingdom of committing an act of aggression against Lebanon.

He arrived in Lebanon's capital, Beirut, late on Tuesday. Aoun, a Christian, is a political ally of Hezbollah.

Afterward, Hariri said he had a "long conversation" with el-Sissi that focused on the need to maintain Lebanon's stability and the need to keep the country away from "all regional policies".

Macron had leveraged France's close relations with both Lebanon and Saudi Arabia to secure a deal that saw Hariri travel to Paris and open the door to a resolution of the crisis.

Hariri, a Sunni Muslim, is a long-time ally of Saudi Arabia.

Lebanon's outgoing Prime Minister Sa'ad Hariri met Saturday with Macron in Paris after fleeing to Riyadh earlier in the month due to what he said was an assassination attempt on his life.

Al-Akhbar noted that negotiations were held between Egypt on one hand and UAE and Saudi on the other in order to preserve the political settlement reached by all the Lebanese parties and supported by the Arab League, according to which PM Hariri keeps in his post.
