Saudi Ambassador to Lebanon Walid Bukhari said that the Kingdom was keen on Lebanon’s security, safety, and stability.


Grand Mufti Sheikh Abdullatif Derian received Bukhari on Tuesday at Dar-al-Fatwa in Beirut.


An official statement said that during the meeting, Ambassador Bukhari highlighted “keenness on Lebanon’s security, safety, and stability,” and reiterated the Kingdom’s support for all the Lebanese.


He also valued the “unifying role assumed by Dar-al-Fatwa,” hoping that the current crisis would end soon and that prosperity and safety would return to Lebanon.


Commenting on the announcement of the US peace plan, known as the “Deal of the Century”, Bukhari renewed Saudi Arabia’s solidarity with the Palestinian people and their legitimate rights.


“Saudi Arabia is committed to a just solution that ensures the rights of the Palestinian people and the establishment of an independent Palestinian state with east Jerusalem as its capital,” he said.
