Lebanon's Al-Hariri arrives in Cairo for talks with Sisi

Lebanese President Michel Aoun meets with Saad al-Hariri who announced his resignation as Lebanon's prime minister from Saudi Arabia and Lebanese Parliament Speaker Nabih Berri at the presidential palace in Baabda

Lebanon's Saad Al Hariri, who announced his resignation as prime minister on Nov.4, has arrived in Cairo for talks with Egyptian President Abdel Fattah Al Sisi, Egyptian state news agency Mena and Hariri's press office said on Tuesday.

"It was a 45-minute meeting which was requested earlier today through diplomatic channels", Cypriot government spokesman Nikos Christodoulides told Reuters of the meeting between Hariri and Cypriot President Nicos Anastasiades.

Also on Tuesday, El-Sisi received a telephone call from Lebanese President Michel Aoun, where they discussed bilateral ties and the political situation in Lebanon, El-Sisi's office said in a statement late on Tuesday. His failure to return to Lebanon since then had sparked rumors he was being held in Riyadh against his will, which both he and Saudi officials have since denied.

Hariri's abrupt resignation and continued stay in Saudi Arabia has caused fears for Lebanon's stability.

Media reports and analysts say el-Sissi and Macron have been trying to convince Hariri to negotiate with other Lebanese leaders a way out of the crisis, thus preventing the country's delicate political balance from unraveling and plunging it into a prolonged crisis that would fuel tension in the region.

While in France, Mr Hariri vowed to return to Lebanon to take part in independence celebrations on Wednesday, adding: "It is there that I will make known my position. after meeting President Aoun". Coinciding with the arrest of senior royals and businessmen in Saudi Arabia, the resignation raised questions about whether the 47-year-old had been coerced into quitting. He has, however, managed to pursue regional policies different from those of Riyadh, particularly in Syria and Yemen, without inflicting serious damage on relations with the Saudis.
