Saudi Ambassador Ali Awad Asiri said Wednesday that Lebanon has not done enough to mend its ties with his country, directly blaming Lebanon's foreign minister for Riyadh's decision to halt vital miliary aid.Both statements accused Iran of supporting terrorism, and one of them classified Hezbollah, an influential member of Lebanon's government, as a terrorist organization.Asiri refused to announce the contents of the message, but called on Lebanon's Cabinet to deal with the situation with "wisdom" and "courage".In an interview later in the day with Sky News, Salam said Bassil's position represented him alone, and not that of Lebanon's government.The premier is expected to head a ministerial delegation to visit Gulf states, in an effort to reassure them of Lebanon's commitment to its Arab identity and Arab consensus.
