7:10 am
with regards to the political situation i will be in beirut in the next few days to take part in the celebration of our independence and all express opinions on all subjects once i've made president. hariri was joined by his wife and eldest son but his other two children were left behind in riyadh fueling speculation about why that was at least the sources said only that it had been the hariri family's personal choice. macro invited to really he said not to offer exile but as an act of friendship the fact that salter riri was here at the elise is being seen by those in france is something of a diplomatic success for him and call it is the french president's mediation attempts over the past two weeks that have seen hariri finally leave riyadh says. this is certainly a diplomatic success for a manual at the start of the lebanese crisis no one was very convinced that he'd be
7:11 am
able to get results but he succeeded in getting hariri out of saudi arabia and hopefully back to lebanon soon but that it's a personal achievement for macro he's managed to re-insert france into the middle east and diplomatic arena what. many people in lebanon say they're fed up with what they regard as foreign meddling in their affairs if hariri does make it back to beirut on wednesday he'll be there is the country celebrates his independence with a public holiday that would be a symbolic moment it would be lost on no one natasha al-jazeera paris so that was a very very first public appearance since his resignation and in lebanon are questioning why two of his children were left behind in riyadh and hauteur as more from beirut . seidel had a rival to the french capital may be a way of showing that he's a free man and that he's able to leave saudi arabia but speculations about his ability to move freely have not been put to rest the very fact that he left his

7:13 am
