Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri said on Saturday that he would not accept any Hezbollah positions that destabilize the security of the region’s Arab countries, according to a report by Reuters. The statement was issued by the prime minister’s press office and did not specify the names of the countries.

Three weeks have passed since Hariri announced his resignation in what has been claimed to be an orchestrated move by Saudi Arabia. Since then, tensions have been particularly high between the Sunni monarchy and Iran and Hezbollah.

As previously reported by JOL, Hariri returned to Lebanon on Wednesday and seemingly resumed his position as prime minister despite the surprising resignation in Saudi Arabia. He arrived in time for the country’s Independence Day, which also took place on Wednesday.

According to Reuters, Hariri said during his Independence Day speech that he made the decision to continue as prime minister in order to ensure Lebanon enforces its “disassociation” policy, that is, staying out of regional conflicts and allowing the country to remain neutral.
