Saudi Arabia advised its citizens not to travel to Lebanon because of a deteriorating political and security situation. Lebanon has been without a president since November last because of the stalemate, which has led to a number of street clashes over the past weeks. “The foreign ministry advised Saudi citizens not to travel to Lebanon in light of unstable political and security circumstances in Lebanon right now,” a statement from the ministry said. This is to ensure safety and security and prevent being exposed to any harm. “The ministry called on Saudis in Lebanon to take precautions and care in their movements.” Arab League chief Amr Moussa said he is planning a new mission to Lebanon at the weekend to try to end the nation’s divisive political crisis.
