Saudi Arabia stops military assistance to Lebanon

131 Days ago

Riyadh: Saudi Arabia announced on Friday that it will stop helping the Lebanese army and security forces because of the Lebanese political stances, Saudi Press Agency reported.

Saudi Arabia has decided to protect its own interests through stopping the military assistance worth $3 billion to the Lebanese army and the unpaid $1 billion dollars to the security forces, the report said.

A Saudi government official said that despite the decision, the country will continue to stand with Lebanese nationals as such stances do not represent them.

Lebanon has not condemned the attacks on the Saudi diplomatic missions in Tehran and Mashhad last month. (IANS)
