Hariri’s Riyadh trip rem­i­nis­cent of Sadr’s to Libya: politi­cian

Tehran Times - - POLITICS -

TEHRAN — Hos­sein Amir Ab­dol­lahian, a se­nior for­eign pol­icy ad­vi­sor to the Ira­nian par­lia­ment speaker, said on Mon­day that the way Le­banese Prime Min­is­ter Saad Hariri was in­vited to Riyadh was rem­i­nis­cent of Imam Musa al-Sadr’s in­vi­ta­tion to Libya and his sub­se­quent ab­duc­tion.

In a tweet on Mon­day, Ab­dol­lahian sug­gested that Saudi Ara­bia had forced Hariri to re­sign as prime min­is­ter of Le­banon, say­ing the king­dom “does not have mercy, even on its friends,” ISNA re­ported.

On Novem­ber 4, Hariri an­nounced his res­ig­na­tion in a tele­vised pro­gram broad­cast from Saudi Ara­bia.
