Hariri arrives in Cairo for meeting with Sisi

Hariri arrived in a private jet from Cyprus on Tuesday night, after meeting with Cypriot President Nicos Anastasiades.

Hariri's resignation on November 4 threw Lebanon into political crisis and put it center-stage in the Middle East's overarching rivalry between Sunni Saudi Arabia and its allies and a bloc led by Shi'ite Iran. Aoun, a Christian, is a political ally of Hezbollah.

He arrived in Lebanon's capital, Beirut, late on Tuesday.

"Lebanon is being shaken so it's important Hariri comes to Paris for us to work with him on the best way out of the crisis", said a senior French diplomat. He did not elaborate and added he would only talk politics once he is back in Lebanon.

Sisi's office said he received a phone call from Lebanese President Michel Aoun in which they discussed "the importance of preserving Lebanon's stability and elevating Lebanon's national interests".

Macron had leveraged France's close relations with both Lebanon and Saudi Arabia to secure a deal that saw Hariri travel to Paris and open the door to a resolution of the crisis.


A message on Hariri's Twitter account said the meeting would be followed by a dinner in his honour. He accused Hezbollah of holding Lebanon hostage and hinted there was a plot against his life. He is expected to return to Beirut on Wednesday.

Hariri, a Sunni Muslim, is a long-time ally of Saudi Arabia. Lebanese officials suggested that Hariri could have been forcibly held in Saudi Arabia, but he dismissed these allegations.

After its 1979 Islamic Revolution, Iran emerged as patron of Lebanon's Shiites, embracing Hezbollah and nurturing it until it became the single strongest political and military group in today's Lebanon.

Hariri is still expected to return to Lebanon, more than two weeks after his shock resignation from Saudi Arabia.

Tensions spiked between Saudi Arabia and Iran after the Houthis fired the missile that was intercepted outside Riyadh. But he also renewed his pledge to come to the rescue of Gulf Arab allies and benefactors if their security was directly threatened.
