Advisor to Lebanese President: Hariri's Resignation Due to Opposition to US Plots
TEHRAN (FNA)- A senior advisor to Lebanese President Michel Aoun said that Prime Minister Saad al-Hariri resigned after rejecting a US plot against his country.

"A message was received from outside Lebanon that showed a number of influential people in the US administration wanted to hit a blow to Lebanon, but Saad Hariri voiced clear opposition to it and his opposition has cost him the present situation that has been enforced since last Saturday," John Aziz told al-Mayadeen news channel on Monday night.

He added that the Lebanese' unity and firm position in support of Hariri changed the Americans' stances and forced them to withdraw from their plots.

Aoun said on Saturday Hariri, who announced his resignation in a broadcast from Saudi Arabia, has been “kidnapped” and must have immunity.

Aoun made the remarks in a meeting with foreign ambassadors in the capital Beirut, a senior unnamed Lebanese official said on Saturday.

Meanwhile, in a statement released by Aoun's office on Saturday, the Lebanese president expressed concern over Hariri's situation and said the premier was living in a “dubious” situation in Saudi Arabia. He added that anything Hariri has said or may say “does not reflect reality” due to the mystery of his situation.

Any stance or move by Hariri “is the result of the dubious and mysterious situation that he is living in the kingdom,” Aoun added.

Aoun further called on Riyadh to clarify why Hariri hasn't returned home since announcing his resignation in the kingdom last week.

“Lebanon does not accept its prime minister being in a situation at odds with international treaties and the standard rules in relations between states,” he said.

He added that a marathon planned in Beirut on Sunday in which tens of thousands are expected to participate should be “a national sports demonstration for solidarity with Prime Minister Hariri and his return to his country.”

Meanwhile, the Arabic-language al-Joumhouria (The Republic) daily newspaper quoted Aoun as saying on Saturday that Beirut would refer Hariri’s case to the UN Security Council within a week if his destiny remains unclear.

Hariri announced his resignation on November 4, citing several reasons, including the security situation in Lebanon, for his sudden decision. He also said that he realized a plot being hatched against his life.

Hariri also accused Iran and the Lebanese resistance movement, Hezbollah, of meddling in the Arab countries’ affairs; an allegation the two have rejected.

The Lebanese prime minister announced his resignation following visits to Saudi Arabia.

The resignation also comes less than a month after he announced plans to join a coalition government with Hezbollah.

Many authorities in Lebanon have insisted on the return of Hariri from Saudi Arabia. Several sources believe that Saudi Arabia is holding Hariri against his will, a claim the kingdom has rejected.

TEHRAN (FNA)- A Lebanese newspaper said it has gained access to a secret letter sent by Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir to Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman which includes proposals and issues related to establishment of relations with Israel.

The Arabic-language al-Akhbar daily revealed the document for the first time on Tuesday.

The document discloses all events that have happened since US President Donald Trump's recent visit to Saudi Arabia and Washington's attempts to mediate endorsement of a peace agreement between Riyadh and Tel Aviv.

It also includes information about the Saudi and Israeli officials' visits to Tel Aviv and Riyadh.

"Saudi Arabia's closeness to Israel entails a risk for the kingdom. We will not do so unless we feel an honest American trend in opposition to Iran, which is destabilizing the region," a part of the long letter said.

In addition, the principles of the Israeli-Palestinian peace plan concocted by the Saudis were laid out. As part of the plan, the Saudi kingdom demanded military equilibrium with Israel, Israel's help in stopping Iranian overtures on the Middle East and turning Jerusalem into a city governed by international rule, according to al-Akhbar.

In relevant remarks in June, Saudi whistle-blower Mujtahid, who is believed to be a member of or have a well-connected source in the royal family, revealed that bin Salman is attempting to pave the ground for overt relations with Israel.

"In line with preparing the public opinion to establish open ties with Israel, bin Salman has launched a media and twitter campaign and gifts any twitter activist or reporter who helps him in this regard," Mujtahid wrote on his twitter page.

Also in the same month, a leading Arab daily disclosed secret meetings between bin Salman and Israeli officials in the past two years.

Al-Qods al-Arabi newspaper reported that the Israeli media have all voiced pleasure in Mohammed bin Salman's appointment as the crown prince, adding that this development has long been wished by the Israelis.

The Arab daily quoted the Israeli newspaper Yediot Aharonot as reporting that the intelligence sources have confirmed that bin Salman has held meetings with the Israeli officials under a secret name, Walad, in the past two years.

The Israeli daily didn’t reveal the venues and time for the meetings, but wrote that Israel and Saudi Arabia have common foes, friends and interests.
