Prime Minister Saad Hariri held talks Thursday at the Grand Serail with the Chargé d'affaires of the Saudi Embassy in Lebanon, Walid Al-Bukhari, and discussed with him the developments, the PM's office said.
“I was honored to present an invitation from the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, King Salman bin Abdul Aziz, to Prime Minister Hariri to participate in the Arab-Islamic-American Summit, which will be held on May 21 in Saudi Arabia,” Bukhari said after the meeting.
“The aim of the Summit is to work towards the establishment of a new partnership to confront extremism and terrorism and reinforce the values of tolerance and better living for the future of our generations in the Arab region,” the envoy added.
The summit will be attended by U.S. President Donald Trump during his upcoming visit to the kingdom.
Saudi media said King Abdullah II of Jordan, Algerian President Abdelaziz Bouteflika and Niger's Mahamadou Issoufou are among leaders invited by King Salman for the summit with Trump.
