Lebanon's Hariri posts selfie with Saudi crown prince after Riyadh meeting
It was the Lebanese prime minister's first trip to the kingdom since relations became strained over his brief resignation last year
Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri has met with Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman during his first trip to the kingdom since relations became strained over his brief resignation late last year.
Mr Hariri posted a selfie with Prince Mohammed and the kingdom's ambassador to the United States following their meeting in Riyadh late on Friday at the end of a three-day visit. The three appeared in informal clothes and flashed wide smiles, apparently signalling a return to normal relations.
The Lebanese prime minister announced his resignation from the Saudi capital in November last year, citing Iran-backed Hizbollah's influence in his country. He reversed his resignation the following month after returning to Lebanon.
