Kuwait backs Le­banon

Cape Times - - WORLD NEWS -

BEIRUT: Kuwait’s am­bas­sador to Le­banon told Pres­i­dent Michel Aoun that the Gulf monar­chy sup­ports his ef­forts to over­come the “del­i­cate sit­u­a­tion” and stands by Le­banese sovereignty, Aoun said in a tweet yes­ter­day.

Le­banon’s Saudi-al­lied Prime Min­is­ter Saad al-Hariri de­clared his res­ig­na­tion on Novem­ber 4 in a broad­cast from Riyadh, throw­ing Le­banon into po­lit­i­cal cri­sis.

Saudi Ara­bia, an ally of Kuwait, has ac­cused Le­banon of declar­ing war on it be­cause of the in­flu­ence of Iran-backed Hezbol­lah, and has ad­vised Saudi cit­i­zens to leave Le­banon.
