Hariri steps back from resignation in Lebanon

Saad Hariri said after meeting with the president of Lebanon that “I presented today my resignation to President Aoun and he urged me to wait before offering it and to hold onto it for more dialogue about its reasons and political background, and I showed responsiveness.”

In early November, in a televised address from Saudi Arabia, Saad Hariri said that he was resigning as Prime Minister of Lebanon. Lebanese President Aoun said in response that he would not consider the resignation of the prime minister until a personal meeting.
