Lebanon's Hariri lands in Cyprus, meets its president- Hariri Twitter feed

Lebanon's Hariri lands in Cyprus, meets its president- Hariri Twitter feed

He arrived in Lebanon's capital, Beirut, late on Tuesday.

"President Macron updated Prime Minister Netanyahu with the measures he is taking in the crisis in Lebanon", the PMO said in a statement.

President Michel Aoun is meanwhile "exerting all efforts possible to relaunch the political and constitutional process in the country, leading serious negotiations away from the media spotlight to create a climate that would keep Hariri in his post", al-Akhbar reported.

Hariri's abrupt resignation and continued stay in Saudi Arabia has caused fears for Lebanon's stability. He has said he'd be back in Beirut in time for Independence Day celebrations on Wednesday.

Fireworks were heard in Beirut as Hariri supporters in mainly Sunni areas celebrated his impending return.

Hariri is now in Paris, where he met French President Emmanuel Macron on Saturday.

Humanitarian gesture: Pakistan allows wife to meet Kulbhushan Jhadav
Pakistan has repeatedly denied India consular access to Jadhav on the ground that it was not applicable in cases related to spies. On May 18, ICJ ordered Pakistan to halt the execution of Indian spy Kulbhushan Jadhav until a final decision in the proceedings.

He also held talks with Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi and said he'll announce his political position after his return to Beirut.

In Lebanon, the army chief called on troops to stand firm against any attempt to incite strife in the country amid the crisis triggered by Hariri's resignation. Aoun, a Christian, is a political ally of Hezbollah.

Hariri, a Sunni Muslim, is a long-time ally of Saudi Arabia.

France, which controlled Lebanon between the world wars, has sought to play a key role in defusing tension with Macron personally getting involved and putting him at the heart of a regional power struggle that will test his diplomatic skills.

Arab League foreign ministers meeting in Cairo on Sunday accused Iran and the Lebanese militant group Hezbollah of destabilising the region. That was met by a rebuke in Tehran.
