The Foreign Ministry Tuesday denied having knowledge of Saudi Arabia's creation of an Islamic anti-terrorism coalition announced overnight, contradicting an earlier statement made by Prime Minister Tammam Salam implying that Lebanon was a member of the alliance.Salam was rebuked by Labor Minister Sejaan Azzi who said Tuesday that Lebanon cannot be a part of this alliance until Cabinet approves the decision. He also took issue with tying Lebanon, which is technically a secular state, to an Islamic alliance. Lebanon has been engaged in a war against ISIS and Nusra Front extremists on the Syria border due to the neighboring conflict.
