    A senior Lebanese official said that the Lebanese Foreign Minister Gebran Bassil will not attend a Sunday meeting of foreign ministers of Arab League member states in Cairo. 

    The official source explained that the minister wanted to avoid tensions which are likely to emerge when discussing the role of Hezbollah with Saudi Arabia and its allies.

    The emergency meeting of Arab foreign ministers was reportedly scheduled at the request of Saudi Arabia, with the support of the UAE, Bahrain and Kuwait.

    The purpose of the meeting is to discuss ways to address the “Iranian interference” in the internal affairs of Arab states. 

    Hariri's sudden resignation on November 4th, announced during his visit to the Saudi capital city of Riyadh, caused political crisis in Lebanon, as well as the growing tensions between Saudi Arabia and Iran.

    Lebanese President Michel Aoun accused Riyadh of holding Hariri a hostage.

    Senior Lebanese officials close to Hariri said he was being held in Saudi Arabia against his will and was forced to resign. However, both, Saudi Arabia and Hariri denied these claims.
