-

BEIRUT: Prime Minister-designate Saad Hariri expressed solidarity with Saudi Arabia Sunday as the kingdom faces criticism over the disappeara­nce of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, according to a statement from Hariri’s office. “Saudi Arabia is one of the main countries trusted with the stability of the region and the advocacy of Arab causes,” the statement said. Hariri said campaigns targeting the kingdom are a threat to the region’s stability and “drag the region into more negativity.” Khashoggi disappeare­d Oct. 2 after entering the Saudi consulate in Istanbul to obtain documents for his upcoming marriage. Saudi Arabia has faced internatio­nal criticism for what some countries have deemed a lack of cooperatio­n in the investigat­ion. The kingdom has denied all accusation­s in the Khashoggi case. –
