Lebanese President Michel Aoun said on Thursday that Saad al-Hariri will arrive in Paris on Saturday with his family, where he will remain for a few days before coming to Beirut, according to Reuters.
In a tweet, Aoun said that he was pleased by Hariri's announcement of his return to Lebanon, asserting that he will meet him to discuss several issues.
سررت بإعلان الرئيس الحريري عن قرب عودته الى لبنان، وعندها سنطّلع منه على كافة الظروف والمواضيع والهواجس التي تحتاج الى معالجة.
