Lebanese President Michel Aoun publicly accused Saudi Arabia of detaining his country's prime minister, at a meeting with journalists and media executives in Beirut, on Wednesday. Aoun announced that his government believes that Prime Minister Saad Hariri is being detained in Saudi Arabia, which is an “act of aggression against Lebanon.” “Nothing justifies the failure of Prime Minister Saad... Еще Hariri to return for 12 days. Therefore, we consider him to be held and detained, contrary to the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations», he said. Hariri resigned unexpectedly on November 4 during a visit to Riyadh. He has since denied rumours that he is under house arrest and said he left Lebanon to ensure his own safety.
