Russia affirmed its support for Lebanon’s sovereignty and independence against the backdrop of the ongoing protests, stressing its rejection of any attempts to interfere in foreign affairs in Lebanon.

The Russian president’s special envoy to the Middle East and North Africa and Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov met on Tuesday with Lebanese Presidential Adviser Amal Abu Zeid to discuss the situation in Lebanon, the ministry said in a statement. Prime Minister Saad Hariri resigned over mass demonstrations caused by the deteriorating socio-economic conditions of the country’s population.

“ The Russian side stressed its support for the sovereignty, independence, unity and stability of the Lebanese Republic, ” the statement added, stressing its firm and systematic stand to resolve all acute issues of the national agenda by the Lebanese themselves, within the legal framework and through a comprehensive dialogue in the interest of ensuring national peace and consensus.

The Russian side, according to the ministry, focused attention on “rejecting any attempts to interfere in foreign affairs in Lebanon and manipulate geopolitical scenarios by exploiting and fueling the existing difficulties faced by friendly Lebanon.”

The Russian Foreign Ministry has stressed that the protests in Lebanon are an internal affair of the country, calling for a solution through a comprehensive dialogue that allows the preservation of political stability inside the country.
