Saudi envoy Nizar Al Alula succeeded in holding a reconciliation meeting between Lebanese Prime Minister Saad al-Hariri, the executive chairman of the Lebanese Forces Party, Samir Geagea and Druze leader Walid Jumblatt.

The meeting between the three leaders is the first of its kind in a long time.

A source commented that the meeting was the beginning of understandings between the three parties, stressing that the Saudi move aims to strengthen the Lebanese national leaders to achieve stability in Lebanon.

Al Alula confirmed to the Lebanese officials whom he met with last Monday in Beirut and Baabda that "Lebanon is at the heart of the Saudi leadership and its thoughts," the newspaper Asharq al-Awsat reported.

Al Alula gave Lebanese Prime Minister Saad al-Hariri an official invitation to visit the kingdom.
