King Abdullah received a phone call today from Lebanese president Michel Aoun.

The King and Aoun discussed relationships between the Kingdom and Lebanon, and the latest developments in the region.

The King affirmed Jordan’s support of Lebanon in its effort of maintaining national unity and stability.

This comes a day after Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri’s surprise resignation through a televised speech in Saudi Arabia, where he criticized Iran and its role the Middle East, and expressed fear of assassination.

President Aoun, however, will not accept Hariri’s resignation until his return to Lebanon, according to Reuters.
