Okab Saqr, a member of parliament for Hariri's Future Movement, said after Hariri's visit to France he would have "a small Arab tour" before traveling to Beirut.

A poster bearing a portrait of Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri reads in Arabic "There is no hapiness without Saad" is seen on a billboard on Beirut's airport highway, on November 21, 2017. Aoun spoke in a televised speech on the eve of the country's independence day celebrations.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is slated to meet with French President Emmanuel Macron in early December to discuss developments in Lebanon, the Prime Minister's Office said Sunday. His surprise resignation in an announcement from Riyadh has sparked a political crisis in Lebanon as part of a regional power struggle between Saudi Arabia and Iran.

A French presidential source said Macron had reiterated that Paris wanted Hariri to return to Lebanon to ensure the country's political system continued to function and that it was imperative it remained "disassociated" from regional crises.

A dual Saudi citizen who has previously enjoyed Riyadh's backing, he resigned saying he feared for his life.

His attempt to step down also coincides with a purge of more than 200 Saudi princes, ministers and businessmen.

"Some people say I was removed from the post of foreign secretary because of these comments", he suggested.

Without mentioning Saudi Arabia directly, Gabriel had said Thursday that he shared concerns about the threat of instability and bloodshed in Lebanon and warned against "adventurism". Sisi and Aoun "underscored the importance of preserving Lebanon's stability as well as upholding Lebanon's national interest".

France, which held mandate power over Lebanon for the first half of the 20th century, plans to bring together global support for Lebanon, depending on how the situation develops.

The only group to maintain a paramilitary force since the end of Lebanon's bloody 15-year civil war in 1990, Hezbollah, which is financially and militarily supported by Iran, ignores the official Lebanese policy of staying out of regional conflicts. He said Tehran was sowing "chaos and destruction" in the region.

"Lebanon is being shaken so it's important Hariri comes to Paris for us to work with him on the best way out of the crisis", said a senior French diplomat.
