Too early to talk about Lebanon's government resigning: parliament speaker

France believes Hariri free of movements in Saudi

Saudi Arabia is more aggressively confronting its rival Iran on multiple fronts.

Speaker Nabih Berri said in a televised statement he agreed with Aoun's statement.

But the cash price of Lebanon's US dollar-denominated bonds fell, with longer-dated maturities suffering hefty losses as investors took a dim view of the medium-to longer-term outlook for Lebanon. So far, the kingdom's policies appear to have the full support of U.S. President Donald Trump.

Saudi Arabia, a political ally of Hariri, is locked in a bitter tussle for power across the Middle East with Iran and its allies, including Hezbollah. The missile was intercepted by air defenses, but it was the deepest rebel strike in Saudi territory since the Yemen war began in 2015. In recent weeks, leading Christian politicians who oppose Hezbollah have also visited Saudi Arabia.

- Crown Prince Mohammed appeared to strengthen his power at home.

Mr Hariri's father, former prime minister Rafik al-Hariri, was assassinated in 2005.

Was Saturday a "Red Wedding" moment for the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia?


In Yemen, the war has cost the Saudi economy hundreds of millions of dollars.

Iran has backed the Houthi rebels, but denies arming them. Iran was sowing strife, destruction and ruin wherever it went and accused it of a "deep hatred for the Arab nation", he said.

Neither side seems willing or able to escalate the fight, leaving a debilitating stalemate. Aides to Hariri, whose family made their fortune in the Saudi construction industry, strongly denied he had been detained or had been forced to resign.

Hezbollah still dominates Lebanon, and nothing will shake that anytime soon. Thus, Nasrallah rejected Hariri's resignation and is determined that the present Lebanese government continues. The irony was lost on him.

Iran's Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Ghasemi criticized it as a U.S. -Israeli-Saudi plot to cause tension in Lebanon.

The prime minister must be a Sunni in Lebanon's sectarian system.

Iran has intensified its influence in Syria, with its own forces and fighters from Hezbollah and Iraqi Shiite militias battling alongside Assad's troops. Israel is not interested in escalation in the near future, and the same is true of Hezbollah. One was the head of the Saudi National Guard. Hariri is Lebanon's most influential Sunni politician. Saudi warplanes helped in the U.S. -led air campaign against the Islamic State group. Hezbollah's first priority is to achieve victory in Syria, to make sure the Ba'ath regime prevails there. When Saudi Arabia and the UAE barred Qatari aircraft from their airspace, Qatar used Iranian airspace. "If the Saudis are right and it limits Hezbollah and Iran, Israel will gain". Associated Press writers Zeina Karam and Bassem Mroue in Beirut, Maggie Michael in Cairo, Ahmed al-Haj in Sanaa, Yemen, and Amir Vahdat in Tehran contributed.
