Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Saud al-Faisal said he was surprised by the "erroneous interpretations" of his remarks on the situation in Lebanon and stressed support for Lebanese legitimacy.
In a statement to the Saudi Press Agency, al-Faisal denied that he had told al-Arabiya TV network there was a change in Saudi policy towards Lebanon.

"This is untrue. Only the mediation has changed," said al-Faisal.

On Wednesday, al-Faisal told al-Arabiya that Riyadh abandoned efforts to mediate in Lebanon's political crisis, warning of a "dangerous" situation.

He stressed to SPA on Friday that his country "will continue to back Lebanese legitimacy because it is the basis for Lebanon's stability and its security and safety."

Al-Faisal reiterated that Riyadh supports the Lebanese parliamentary majority headed by Caretaker PM Saad Hariri.

Meanwhile, Future Bloc member MP Ahmad Fatfat explained that MP Walid Jumblatt announced, during the press conference he held Friday, the outlook of the Progressive Socialist Party and not that of the Democratic Gathering bloc.

Fatfat conveyed March 14's relief over the parliamentary consultations scheduled for Monday and Tuesday, and are certain that the majority of the parliament will nominate Prime Minister Saad Hariri to lead a new government.

'Jumblatt's outlook was expected as he was subject to a great deal of pressure, which Minister Ghazi Aridi conveyed to him following a visit to Damascus,” Fatfat told the OTV in an interview Friday.

Fatfat said Jumblatt's outlook 'will not change anything for the Future movement, PM Hariri, or the March 14 group, who have stated their outlook and who have chosen PM Hariri to lead a new government.”

On a parallel note, the Future bloc MP affirmed that the Future Movement 'will not be dragged to a local strife or to street clashes.”
