Hezbollah calls on Saudi Arabia to cease interfering in Lebanon: statement

BEIRUT (Reuters) - Hezbollah’s parliamentary bloc called on Saudi Arabia on Thursday to stop interfering in Lebanese affairs after Lebanon’s prime minister quit in a weekend broadcast from the kingdom.

Hezbollah MP Hassan Fadlallah said the bloc supports the approach of Lebanon’s president, who has refused to decide on whether to accept the shock resignation until Prime Minister Saad al-Hariri returns home.
