Lebanon's Prime Minister Saad al-Hariri arrived in Beirut Tuesday evening after his sudden resignation in a televised statement he read from the Saudi Arabian capital Riyadh on November 4.
The Lebanese president has yet to accept Hariri's resignation, who is expected in Beirut on Wednesday for the celebration of National Day.
His surprise resignation announced from Riyadh triggered a political crisis in Lebanon's power-sharing government.

Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi together with France's leader, Emmanuel Macron, is reportedly trying to mediate a solution that would involve rolling back Hariri's resignation.
Saudi Arabia, Hariri's long-time political patron, is Iran's arch-foe in the region. More celebrations are planned for Wednesday.
