Lebanese PM Hariri withdraws resignation

BEIRUT: Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri has officially withdrawn his resignation on Tuesday, a month after saying he was quitting in a shock announcement in Saudi Arabia, reports BBC.


He had already suspended it two weeks ago after returning to Lebanon.


In a statement, he said the situation had been resolved after all members of the government agreed to stay out of the affairs of other Arab states. Hariri had accused coalition partner Hezbollah and Iran of spreading strife across the region.


He had also said there was a plot to kill him, though he did not give any details.


Shia militant group Hezbollah is part of a national unity government formed by Hariri last year which effectively ended years of civil war in the country.
