Saudi state television broadcast on Saturday (November 11) footage that showed Lebanese Prime Minister Saad al-Hariri meeting King Salman at the Riyadh airport after the monarch’s return from a trip to Medina.
The Lebanese premier took part in the ceremony welcoming Saudi King Salman, his media office said. Hariri met with the Turkish and British ambassadors at his Riyadh home in the afternoon, it said.
Hezbollah says it believes Hariri is being held under house arrest in Saudi Arabia since November 4 when he announced a surprise resignation and attacked Hezbollah and Iran.
Hariri’s resignation, which surprised even his close aides, has plunged Lebanon into crisis. It has thrust the country back into the frontline of a power struggle between Sunni Saudi Arabia and Shia Iran - a rivalry that has wrought upheaval in Syria, Iraq, Yemen, and Bahrain.
