Saudi Ambassador to Lebanon Ali al-Asiri on Friday dismissed reports of trying to influence the shape of the Lebanese government, saying the kingdom does not interfere in Lebanon’s domestic affairs.

“I find strange the insistence of the some media outlets unlawfully pushing Saudi Arabia's name in the issue of the Lebanese government formation, size and components,” Ambassador Asiri said in a press release.

“The Kingdom, out of its’ friendly/brotherly ties and genuine care for Lebanon, wishes the Lebanese would accomplish national unity and form a government that satisfies their ambitions, one that is capable of leading the country during a time when all political powers need to unite,” Asiri added.
