Iran says does not interfere in Lebanese state affairs

Voices from the Arab press

The Saudi-led alliance closed all of Yemen's main air and sea ports recently, a move it said was aimed at stopping the flow of arms to Iran-backed Houthi rebels.

Saad Hariri announced resignation from the position of Lebanese Prime Minister in a video address from Riyadh on November 4.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in a statement on Saturday that Washington calls upon "all states and parties to respect Lebanon's sovereignty, independence, and constitutional processes".

Lebanese President Michel Aoun welcomed Hariri's statements and said he hoped the prime minister would return to Lebanon soon.

After two years of a devastating war, the Houthis still control much of Yemen's north while the south falls under the embattled President of Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi, whose government is recognized by the global community and who is supported by the Saudi-led coalition.

The resignation also comes less than a month after he announced plans to join a coalition government with Hezbollah.

"The Lebanese people have been waiting for him (Hariri) to return because the situation has come to a stop and the Lebanese people have been unsettled", el-Rai said.

"Lebanon does not accept its prime minister being in a situation at odds with global treaties and the standard rules in relations between states", he said.

The United States regularly criticizes Iran and Hezbollah for their role in Lebanon.

"We will carry these concerns to the king and crown prince and wish well", he said.

The Future TV channel had asked its viewers to share questions for Hariri under the hashtag #AskthePM in an attempt to dispel reports that the interview was pre-recorded.

"The Saudis have gone too far this time". He repeatedly drank water, finishing his glass and asking for more.

On his last trip to Saudi Arabia, just a few days before, Hariri had met with senior Saudi intelligence at the behest of the king's son, Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, who is widely regarded as the true power behind the throne. He pleaded with her to finish the questioning after an hour has passed. He has friends and supporters and interests and so forth, first and foremost among them the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, whom Saad Hariri said he look up as a father figures. "He is always welcome there and he will continue to be welcome there".
