A source from Saudi Arabia’s foreign ministry has described several media reports that Riyadh was uncomfortable with Lebanon’s prime minister’s visit to Turkey as false.
The source said there was no truth to these news reports that were promoted by Qatari newspapers.
“No Saudi source has issued any statements about the visit of the Lebanese prime minister to Turkey,” Saudi Arabia’s Foreign Ministry said in a Tweet on Wednesday.
Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri visited Turkey on Jan. 30 and met with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Prime Minister Ben Ali Yildirim. The meetings dealt with the latest developments in Lebanon and the region and means of developing bilateral relations between the two countries in various fields.
