Today (Tuesday), Lebanese Prime Minister Saad al-Hariri completely withdrew his resignation. According to Hariri, the cabinet thanked him for the decision.

Last week, the prime minister indicated that he will most likely withdraw his resignation if the “positive” matters and the political situation continue. Earlier last month, Hariri announced his resignation from Saudi Arabia but suspended it due to Lebanese President Michel Aoun’s request.

“I expect cooperation from all the sides in Lebanon to rebuild the country,” Hariri said upon his return to Beirut after spending about a week and a half in Riyadh.
