Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri has accepted an invitation to leave Saudi Arabia and go to France, an Elysee Palace spokewoman told CNN on Thursday. It comes a day after Lebanon's President accused Riyadh of holding Hariri "captive".
Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri will fly to Paris "in the coming days," a spokeswoman for the French presidency said Wednesday. The statement came after French President Emmanuel Macron, amid public uncertainty about Hariri's freedom of movement in Saudi Arabia, invited Hariri to France following a conversation with him and Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, the Elysee Palace said.
