Prime Minister Saad Hariri met with Maronite Patriarch Bechara Al-Rahi in Riyadh on Tuesday, as part of the latter's landmark visit to Saudi Arabia.

Later, Patriarch Al-Rahi said that Hariri had assured him that he will return to Lebanon very soon.

"I am convinced of the motives which led Hariri to step down," he said.

The meeting, which took place at the Patriarch's place of stay, is the first to be held by Hariri with a Lebanese figure since his resignation on November 4.
