Saudi Ambassador to Lebanon, Walid Bukhari, on Wednesday received at his Yarze residence, Caretaker Minister of Interior, Mohammad Fahmi, who fully condemned the most recent statements against the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

In the wake of the meeting, Fahmi confirmed that the allegations about Nineveh, Palmyra, and Anbar, were utterly erroneous. He reiterated the fact that the Kingdom’s assistance to the Lebanese army and security forces had helped these forces overcome all the obstacles that faced Lebanon during the fight against terrorism.

“I confirm that the Kingdom is a safety valve for all Arab countries without exception, including Lebanon, let alone the 300,000 Lebanese citizens making a living in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia,” Fahmi said.

“I confirm that what has been issued against the KSA is fully condemned and rejected altogether,” he added.

Fahmi finally indicated that his visit and stances to Bukhari came in his personal capacity as Lebanon’s Minister of Interior.
