Lebanon's Prime Minister, Saad Hariri, has arrived in Saudi Arabia on Wednesday, his first visit there since his surprise resignation from Riyadh in November.

Saad Hariri is set to meet Saudi King Salman and Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, A statement by Hariri's media office said on Tuesday. 

Hariri stunned Lebanon and the world on November 4, 2017 by announcing his resignation in a live television broadcast from Saudi Arabia. He accused Iran and Hezbollah of sowing strife in the Arab world, an allegation rejected by both sides.

A New York Times report later revealed that Hariri, upon arrival in Riyadh, had found himself manhandled by Saudi forces and forced to resign.

Hariri, however, managed to get out of the kingdom amid international pressure on Riyadh.

He rescinded his resignation after returning home.
