BEIRUT: Former Prime Minister Saad Hariri met Tuesday with a delegation from the Syrian National Coalition headed by Sheikh Amhad Moaz al-Khatib, a statement from Hariri’s press office said.

Hariri voiced full solidarity with the Syrian uprising against the Assad regime and hailed the opposition for uniting its ranks.

“Lebanon is looking forward to the day when the Syrian people’s wishes for a democratic regime and for oppression to end come true,” said Hariri.

Hariri said that supporting the Syrian opposition is a national duty and that such support will continue despite the difficult challenges faced by the Syrian rebel forces. “Standing by the opposition and the the Syrian National Coalition is a national duty that stems from our Arab sense of responsibility,” Hariri said.

The delegation, which visited Lebanon’s Future Movement head at his Saudi Arabia residence, included top leaders from the Syrian opposition.
