Lebanese patriarch, in Saudi, says supports reasons Hariri quitBy Stephen Kalin RIYADH (Reuters) – Lebanon’s Christian Maronite Patriarch, visiting Saudi Arabia in an historic visit to the ultra-conservative Muslim kingdom, expressed support on Tuesday for the reasons behind Lebanese Prime Minister Saad al-Hariri’s resignation.
