At French President Emmanuel Macron's invitation, Prime Minister Saad Hariri joined him Tuesday night for talks and dinner at the Elysee Palace with visiting Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman, Macron's office said.Speaking at the news conference, Prince Mohammad lashed out at Iran, accusing it of destabilizing the region and supporting terrorism through Lebanon's Hezbollah and the Houthis in Yemen.It was Hariri's second get-together with Prince Mohammad in less than 24 hours after having met with the Saudi crown prince in Paris Monday night, in the latest signal of improved Lebanese-Saudi ties, strained since Hariri's resignation crisis last year.There were no immediate details on Hariri's talks with Prince Mohammad. Hariri flew into Paris Monday for a meeting with Prince Mohammad just days after he attended an international conference in Paris aimed at bolstering Lebanon's battered economy and aging infrastructure.Hariri, who has praised the CEDRE conference, is scheduled to hold a news conference at noon Wednesday at the Grand Serail to speak on the results of the conference.
