Former Prime Minister Saad Hariri will visit Washington next week for talks with senior U.S. officials in the latest of his regional and foreign trips aimed at shielding Lebanon from the repercussions of regional turmoil, political sources said Wednesday.While Hariri has vehemently supported the Saudi military intervention in Yemen, Hezbollah leader Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah has denounced Riyadh for spearheading the offensive and accused it of launching the war in an attempt to regain control over the impoverished Gulf country.Nasrallah is scheduled to address a Hezbollah rally in Beirut's southern suburbs Friday to show solidarity with the Yemeni people against the military intervention.While upholding his strong support for the Future-Hezbollah talks, Berri called Wednesday for a dialogue among Arab countries, saying Lebanon was ready to host peace talks among the warring factions in Yemen. Berri, according to the MPs, said Lebanon was ready to host reconciliation talks between the rival factions in Yemen to end the conflict there.
