Lebanese PM accepts visit from Turkish Ambassador
BEIRUT - Anadolu Agency
“The conversation was held in a warm and friendly environment,” Erciyes said following the visit.
“I reiterated Turkey’s stance in supporting Lebanon’s unity, security and prosperity, and its wish to avoid more political turmoil in the region,” he added.
Bilateral relations and developments were at the heart of the meeting, the Lebanese Prime Ministry said in a written statement after the meeting.
Erciyes was the fifth ambassador to meet Hariri upon the latter’s return to Lebanon, following visits from the French, U.S., Russian and EU ambassadors.
Hariri resigned abruptly while in Saudi Arabia on Nov. 4, sparking a political crisis in Lebanon. He then returned to Beirut late on Nov. 21 and stepped back from his resignation, prompting confusion and uncertainty in the country.
