Arab League Expresses Concern over Worsening Lebanese-Gulf Relations

The Arab League said on Saturday it was concerned about a rapid deterioration of Lebanese-Gulf relations after critical comments from a Lebanese minister about the Arab military intervention in Yemen.

 

“...Aboul Gheit expressed his deep concern and regret over the rapid deterioration in Lebanese-Gulf relations...,” the statement said. It added he was confident Lebanese President Michel Aoun and Prime Minister Najib Mikati would act quickly to ease the crisis.

 

The statement came a day after Saudi Arabia ordered the Lebanese ambassador to the kingdom to leave within 48 hours and banned all Lebanese imports in response to remarks by the Lebanese minister.
