Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri has formally rescinded his resignation following a consensus deal reached with rival political parties.
- UN chief warns: Israel-Hezbollah tensions could escalate into conflict
- Lebanon's Hariri: Hezbollah's involvement in Middle East conflicts will cost us dearly
- Meet the hawkish Saudi minister leading the kingdom's proxy wars with Iran and Lebanon
The announcement came at the end of the first cabinet meeting to be held since Lebanon was thrown into a political crisis following Hariri's stunning November 4 move.
Tuesday's Cabinet meeting, attended by Hariri, endorsed a statement that calls on rival Lebanese groups to distance themselves from regional conflicts and the internal affairs of Arab countries.
Hariri heads a coalition government that includes ministers from the Lebanese militant Hezbollah group.
