KSA Ambassador to Lebanon, Walid Bukhari, on Wednesday received at his Yarze residence Sheikh Akl of the Lebanese Druze community, Sheikh Naim Hassan, at the head of an accompanying delegation.

In the wake of the meeting, Sheikh Hassan said in a statement: "Our visit today aims to confirm the role of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia in supporting Lebanon and safeguarding it from dangers through its generous initiatives and honorable endeavors to preserve this country."

He added, "We wish the KSA, the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, and Ambassador Bukhari safety and preservation. We condemn what had happened, and we regret that it misrepresents our customs, traditions, and manners — it is arbitrary."

He finally affirmed the solidity of relations among Lebanon, Gulf states and the KSA.
