Lebanon is dedicated to its ties with Arab nations and my federal government is eager to have the very best relationships with Saudi Arabia,” Lebanese Head Of State Najib Mikati stated in statements launched just recently. Kordahi appeared on an Al Jazeera-affiliated youth program, according to records.

Assad “confirmed he is a guy reduced from a various towel”, he informed Hezbollah’s Al Manar TV in an interview. “As an Arab man, as a Lebanese, I tell you this: had this male not stood up to, Syria would certainly no longer exist. Lebanon would no longer exist. Jordan and the Gulf neither.”
