Deryan: in praise of the “Saudi supportive Role in Lebanon”

FEBRUARY 22, 2015 (REFERRING TO THE NATIONAL NEWS AGENCY – LEBANON) The Saudi role is supportive to all Lebanese of various shades and stripes, Sunni mufti Abdullatif Deryan, told senior Saudi clergymen he’d met on his KSA tour today.

Saudi Arabia also backs ongoing dialogue between various Lebanese protagonists in the interest of all, he added. King Salman consolidates Arab solidarity in the face of whoever chooses to tamper with and destabilize the Arabian Gulf, he exclaimed.

The mufti expressed optimism over a likely positive outcome to Hizbullah-Future Bloc talks, saying they may lead to electing a new president provided that all leaders act wisely.

Among Deryan’s earlier itinerant visit activities has been an anti-terror conference attended by the Saudi mufti in Mecca.
