Iranian President Hassan Rouhani has labeled Prime Minister Saad Hariri's shock resignation an "unprecedented" interference in Lebanese affairs and laying blame at the door of Saudi Arabia.Rouhani's remarks followed a phone call to President Michel Aoun the previous day, in which the Iranian president pledged support for Lebanon's stability. The Iranian president also offered a warning to Saudi Arabia. Rouhani reiterated that Iran wanted a peaceful settlement of the conflict between the rebels and the Saudi-backed Yemeni government, and of other wars around the region that have placed it at loggerheads with Riyadh.Speaking from Sharm el-Sheikh late Wednesday, Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah el-Sisi warned against engaging Hezbollah, saying that the Middle East already has enough turmoil.
