A source at Saudi Arabia’s Foreign Ministry said that French President Emmanuel Macron’s recent comments that the Kingdom detained Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Al-Hariri in November was incorrect, Saudi state-news agency SPA reported.

The source explained that Saudi Arabia continues to support the stability, security, and state of Lebanon by all means available.

He also stated that all evidence pointed to Iran and its proxies were destabilizing Lebanon and the region, such as Hezbollah’s terrorist militia involvement in the assassination of former Lebanese PM Rafiq Al-Hariri and the killing of two French citizens in the country, as well as its backing of the Houthi militia.

The source added that the Kingdom looks forward to working with the French president to tackle all destabilizing militias led by Iran.
