Aoun reiterated Beirut’s interest in fraternal ties with Arab countries and the world, but especially with the so-called Gulf countries and particularly Saudi Arabia.
However, friendly relations must be reciprocal, he said.
Previously, Deputy Hassan Fadlallah, from the Loyalty to the Resistance Bloc, said that Saudi Arabia, when accusing Hezbollah of terrorism, offended the Lebanese who fought in the resistance against Israel.
Hezbollah Secretary General, Hassan Nasrallah, said that the Resistance did not violate or attack Saudi Arabia, which, however, is an accomplice of regional instability due to its support to terrorist groups.
In the same vein, Nasrallah denounced the destabilizing role of Saudi, who, according to him, held thousands of Lebanese hostage and often threaten this country with coercive measures.
Due to pressures by Saudi Arabia, Minister of Information George Kordahi and Foreign Minister Charbel Wehbe, who critized Riyadh for its involvement in the Yemen conflict, had to resign from their positions in the Lebanese government.
