Saad Hariri says he is ‘free’, will return to Lebanon

Saad Hariri pledged he would return to Lebanon from Saudi Arabia “very soon”, in his first television interview since his shock resignation as prime minister eight days ago.

In an exclusive interview from Riyadh with his party’s Future TV, Hariri brushed aside rumours that he was under de facto house arrest in Saudi Arabia.

“I am free here. If I want to travel tomorrow, I will,” Hariri told.

“I will return to Lebanon very soon to initiate the necessary constitutional procedures,” Hariri said.

Hariri, who also holds Saudi citizenship, stepped down in a televised broadcast from Riyadh on November 4, a move that sent shockwaves throughout Lebanon and the region.
