BEIRUT: Former Prime Minister Saad Hariri congratulated Felipe VI on becoming King of Spain, his office said Tuesday.

In a letter to the new king, Hariri wished Felipe “success, and praised the friendly relations between Lebanon and Spain, which has always supported the economy, security and stability of Lebanon.”

Felipe became king after his father, Juan Carlos, abdicated earlier this month.
