Kuwait Summons its Ambassador to Lebanon
Kuwait requests that the Chargé d'Affaires leave the Lebanese embassy within 48 hours and summons its ambassador to Lebanon.
Kuwait on Saturday decided to summon its ambassador from Lebanon and demanded that the charge d'affaires of the Lebanese embassy leave the country within 48 hours.
Kuwait's decision came following Saudi Arabia's decision on Friday, to summon its ambassador in Lebanon for consultations, and asked the ambassador to Lebanon to leave the kingdom within 48 hours. It additionally decided to suspend all Lebanese imports to it.
Furthermore, Bahrain called on the Lebanese ambassador to leave its lands within 48 hours.
This comes after statements by the Lebanese Minister of Information, George Kordahi, in which he described the Yemen war as "futile", adding that Ansar Allah has been defending itself against the external aggression on Yemen for years, which in return provoked international and local reactions.
Commenting on Saudi Arabia and Bahrain's decision regarding Lebanon, the head of the Marada Movement, Suleiman Frangieh, said from Bkerke that the Lebanese Minister of Information, George Kordahi, "was treated unjustly and I stand with him."
Frangieh stressed that "if the government resigns, we will not be able to form a government before the end of the mandate."
He stressed that he has no gains from the current situation but he will not allow Kordahi to be used as a scapegoat.
In turn, Lebanese Prime Minister Najib Mikati announced that he regrets Saudi Arabia's action against Lebanon, wishing that it would "reconsider its decision," and stressing that work will be ongoing to do what needs to be done.
Mikati also asked Lebanon's Information Minister, George Kordahi, to make the appropriate decision to fix Lebanon's Arab relations, also calling on Foreign Minister Abdallah Bou Habib to stay in Beirut and establish a crisis management cell to deal with the current unfolding events.
