    Lebanon’s Grand Mufti Abdul Sheikh Abdul Latif Deryan reemphasized on Friday the importance of brotherly and historic relations.

    Lebanon’s Grand Mufti Abdul Sheikh Abdul Latif Deryan reemphasized on Friday the importance of “brotherly and historic relations” that tie the Middle Eastern country to Saudi Arabia.

    His remarks come after the resignation of Prime Minister Saad al-Hariri last week.

    Hariri has made no public remarks since announcing his resignation in a speech televised from Saudi Arabia, saying he feared assassination and accusing Iran and Hezbollah of sowing strife in the Arab world.
