Macron Welcomes Hariri in Paris After Saudi 'Hostage' Rumors

The Lebanese prime minister Saad Hariri arrived to Paris to meet the French president Emmanuel Macron on November 18, a few days after Lebanon accused Saudi Arabia of holding him “hostage,” according to Reuters.

Macron welcomed Hariri and tweeted “Ahlan wa sahlan,” which means “welcome” in Arabic.
Hariri’s children reportedly didn’t accompany him to France and stayed in Saudi Arabia, according to Lebanese journalists. Credit: Twitter/Emmanuel Macron via Storyful
