United Nations chief 'very worried' by Saudi-Lebanon tensions

United Nations chief 'very worried' by Saudi-Lebanon tensions”

In the midst of the conflict is Saad al-Hariri, Lebanon's former prime minister, who unexpectedly resigned his post over the weekend.

The head of the Maronite Catholic church, Patriarch Beshara al-Rai, will take a message to the kingdom that "Lebanon can not handle conflict", spokesman Walid Ghayyad said. "We are surrounded by the flames ravaging the Arab world and what we need is wisdom", Salam said after his meeting with Lebanon's Grand Mufti of the Republic Sheikh Abdul Latif Derian at Dar El-Fatwa.

In a televised address Nasrallah said Hariri's resignation was an "unprecedented Saudi intervention" in Lebanese politics and called for Hariri to return to Lebanon. He said Lebanon's government was still legitimate and had not resigned.

Earlier this week, Saudi Arabia accused Lebanon of declaring war against it, citing aggression by the Iran-backed Lebanese Shi'ite group Hezbollah.
