—Former Prime Minister Saad Hariri will visit Washington next week for talks with senior U.S. officials in the latest of his regional and foreign trips aimed at shielding Lebanon from the repercussions of regional turmoil, political sources said Wednesday.

The sources did not give further details, but media reports said Secretary of State John Kerry is among senior U.S. officials Hariri will meet during his visit to Washington.

Hariri paid a short visit to Doha Monday during which he held talks with Qatari Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani centering on the latest developments in the region, especially the Saudi-led airstrikes against Iranian-backed Houthi rebels in Yemen.
