President Michel Suleiman slammed on Wednesday the criticism directed against Saudi Arabia by some officials in Lebanon, rejecting meddling in the affairs of other countries.


He said: “We should not ruin Lebanon’s relations with Saudi Arabia by making baseless accusations against it.” He made his remark during the opening of a conference entitled, “Dialogue: Truth and Democracy,” held in Jbeil.


“Historic ties with a country such as Saudi Arabia should not be ruined through these accusations, especially when it comes to Syria,” declared the president in reference to statements made by Hizbullah chief Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah and other March 8 camp officials. [Link]
