The Arab League's acting chief in Russia, Malik Mosley, said the Arab organization does not intend to suspend Lebanon's membership.
"I can say that this is almost unlikely," Mosley said at a news conference held in Moscow on Saturday in response to a question on whether Saudi Arabia had asked for the suspension of Lebanon's membership. "There are appropriate mechanisms because the League of Arab States is a number of member states, It has to decide on this issue and there is no intention or desire to suspend Lebanon's membership. "
Saad al-Hariri announced from Riyadh on December 4 his resignation from the post of Lebanese Prime Minister, declaring that the atmosphere in Lebanon now resembles the one that preceded the assassination of his father, the late Prime Minister Rafik Hariri.
In response to Hariri's resignation, Lebanese President Michel Aoun said he was waiting for Saad Hariri's return to Beirut to see the circumstances of his resignation.
The Iranian foreign ministry also rejected Saad Hariri's accusations, saying it was "unfounded."
