Saudi Arabia gives Lebanese ambassador 48 hours to depart

Saudi Arabia hosts a forum on combating human trafficking crimes

Saudi Arabia announced on Friday the suspension of all Lebanese imports to the Kingdom, and the recall of its ambassador in Lebanon for consultations, while it requested the departure of the Lebanese ambassador to it within 48 hours, against the background of the statements of the Lebanon’s Minister of Information, George Kordahi.

Through a statement published by the Saudi Press Agency “SPA”, Saudi Arabia said that these statements represent a new cycle of reprehensible and rejected positions issued by Lebanese officials towards the Kingdom and its policies.

The statements added: “This also comes in addition to Lebanon’s failure to take the measures demanded by the Kingdom to stop the export of the scourge of drugs from Lebanon through exports to the Kingdom, especially in light of the terrorist Hezbollah’s control of all ports, as well as the failure to take sanctions against those involved in these crimes.

The statement indicated that in this regard, “the Kingdom’s government regrets the outcome of relations with the Lebanon due to the Lebanese authorities’ ignoring of the facts and their continued failure to take corrective measures to ensure the observance of the relations.”


The statement pointed out that “Hezbollah’s terrorist control over the decision of the Lebanese state has made Lebanon an arena for implementing projects of countries that do not wish the best for Lebanon and its brotherly people, who have historical ties with the Kingdom of all its sects and ethnicities since the independence of the Lebanese Republic,”.
