After Macron meeting, Hariri says will clarify position in Lebanon

According to Al-Akhbar's sources, France insists that PM Hariri remains in office, expressing worries about any governmental vacuum that results from the resignation, "which may lead into a political, security and economic instability".

Lebanon's President Michel Aoun refused to accept Hariri's resignation as he considered it unconstitutional because it was not presented to him in Lebanon. Aoun, a Christian, is a political ally of Hezbollah.

Hariri is expected to attend Lebanon's independence day parade in the capital Wednesday.

Hariri arrived in France on Saturday at the invitation of Macron, who has been trying to calm tensions and avert another proxy conflict in the region, between Saudi-backed and Iranian-backed camps in Lebanon.
