Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri told Future TV in an interview Sunday in the Saudi capital Riyad that he is returning to Lebanon “very soon.”

In the interview broadcast from his place of residence in Riyad, Hariri said, “I will return to Lebanon very soon to perform my obligatory constitutional procedures,” in reference to submitting his official resignation to Lebanese president Michel Aoun.

Earlier this week, Hariri announced his abrupt resignation as prime minister in a televised speech from Riyad.

The PM accused Iran of meddling with Arab affairs, and has expressed fears of assassination.
