Saudi Arabia’s State Minister for Arab Gulf Affairs Thamer al-Sabhan has met with Lebanon’s President Michel Aoun and informed him of the pending appointment of their next ambassador.

Sabhan met with Aoun on Monday President to discuss increasing bilateral ties after the latter’s visit to Saudi Arabia earlier last month.

Other than discussing the appointment of a new Saudi ambassador to Lebanon, both also discussed increasing Saudi Airlines flights to Beirut and the return of the Saudis to spend their holidays in Lebanon.

Saudi Arabia's former ambassador left Beirut last summer, and the post has been vacant since.
