“Lebanon does not accept its prime minister being in a situation at odds with international treaties and the standard rules in relations between states,” he said.

Somebody should remind Lebanese President Michel Aoun that Saad Hariri resigned on November 04, 2017. He is no longer the prime minister of Lebanon. 

Looks like Saudi Arabia is responsible for this, whatever it is. They can't blame anyone else. That would make their own security look bad.

He resigned but he is still the prime minister. The president must accept his resignation for it to be official, which he did not accept yet, and everyone knows Saad Hariri was forced to resign against his will, it wasn’t his decision.

According to Wikipedia via Forbes website, Saad Hariri had a net worth of  $2 billion in 2011, but today his net worth is only $1.07 billion. Wonder if Saudis have frozen his bank account or drawing from it. If he is a hostage in Saudi Arabia, it is Saudi Arabia's fault.

I don't think it's a fault. I think it's intentionally.

This is completely strange now. How can Saad Hariri be a hostage as Lebanese President says? Saudi TV just showed Hariri meeting with the Saudi King.

Quote

Saudi state television broadcast on Saturday, November 11, footage that showed Lebanese Prime Minister Saad al-Hariri meeting King Salman at the Riyadh airport after the monarch's return from a trip to Medina.

The Lebanese premier took part in the ceremony welcoming Saudi King Salman, his media office said. Hariri met with the Turkish and British ambassadors at his Riyadh home in the afternoon, it said.

Lebanon says it believes Hariri is being held under house arrest in Saudi Arabia since November 4 when he announced a surprise resignation and attacked Hezbollah and Iran.

.The way this story is "playing out", l won't be surprised if Hariri has an "accident resulting in death".

The US has posted a 'travel warning' to Lebanon this past week. This even made TV news.

The only 'good' thing is this past week, groups part of the anti-Assad failed coup left Lebanon.

Lebanon’s Prime Minister Saad al-Hariri claims he is not being held captive in Saudi Arabia and will be returning to his country in the next few days.

Hariri made the remarks on Sunday during an interview with the Lebanese TV channel Future TV.

He further said that his resignation had been given in the interest of Lebanon, and that the country may be facing Arab sanctions.

In the column to the right was Tillerson saying Hariri "must return".

Yes. Apparently as @Hassan- said, President Michel Aoun cannot accept Hariri's resignation. If Hariri returns to Lebanon and assures the Lebanese government that he was not forced to resign, then he can step down. Right now it looks like Hariri resigned under pressure, while being kidnapped and held hostage by Saudi Arabia.

Hariri going back to Lebanon?

I think what happened was Israel probably told the Saudis they couldn't attack, asked America to tow the Saudi line, America refused, and then Saudi Arabia was probably like well, we can't beat Yemen best not start something with Lebanon now. What do you think?

Sunday the 12th, the news reported that lsrael said they will not attack except in one or two cases which they announced. ln other words, they do not want to attack unless they "must".  From what l heard, the Saudi attempt to build another coalition in Syria has failed. Trump and Tillerson know how this sick-in-the-head lSlL stuff was started and subsidized and they do not like it.

Opine: Trump does not like these pipeline wars and Tillerson knowing the energy business can always advise Trump on meeting energy-flow needs. Especially since North America is now a net exported of energy.
