Saudi Arabia re-establishes diplomatic ties with Lebanon

The Saudi FM Ministry announced the return of the ambassador of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques to the Republic of Lebanon, in response to what it described as the appeals of the moderate national political forces in Lebanon. 

The Kingdom stressed, as stated in the Saudi FM statement, the importance of the Republic of Lebanon returning to its Arab depth, represented by its national institutions and agencies, for Lebanon to prevail in peace and security, and for its people to enjoy stability and security in their homeland. 

Last October, Saudi Arabia announced that it had summoned Beirut’s ambassador to the Kingdom in protest against the controversial statements made by former Lebanese Minister of Information George Kordahi regarding the Arab coalition to support legitimacy in Yemen. It also announced the summons of the Saudi ambassador to Beirut. 

The Saudi Ministry of Foreign Affairs announced the return of the ambassador of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques to the Republic of Lebanon, in response to what it described as the appeals of the moderate national political forces in Lebanon. 

The Ambassador of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Walid Al-Bukhari, who is returning to Beirut, praised the efforts of the Lebanese Prime Minister to protect the country in this difficult circumstance and restore the Lebanese-Saudi relations to their normal course. 

This came during a phone call received by Prime Minister Najib Mikati from the Ambassador of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, congratulating him on the advent of the blessed month of Ramadan, and inviting him to participate in an iftar party he is holding at the embassy.

The contact was an occasion to confirm the depth of Lebanon’s Arab relations and Mikati’s appreciation of the Gulf and Saudi move in particular, with the return of ambassadors to Beirut as a prelude to restoring these relations to their full recovery.
