President Abdel-Fattah al-Sisi held a telephone conversation with Lebanese President Michel Aoun during which they discussed the latest development in the Lebanese crisis.

The Spokesman for the Egyptian Presidency، Bassam Rady sait the talks discussed the importance of preserving Lebanon's stability and elevating Lebanon's national interests in light of the strong relations between the two countries، in addition to addressing the latest political developments in Lebanon.

The two presidents agreed to continue intensive coordination and consultation on the latest developments in Lebanon.

The outgoing Lebanese Prime Minister Saad al-Hariri left Cairo on Tuesday heading to Beirut on a private plane after a brief visit to Egypt during which he met with President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi and discussed the latest developments in the region and Lebanon.

Hariri's visit to Cairo follows two weeks of deep uncertainty after he announced his resignation on November 4 in a speech from Saudi Arabia. He has said he will return to Lebanon by Wednesday.

A message on Hariri's Twitter account said he would meet and then dine with Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi، who has sought to ease the tensions between Hariri's sponsors in Saudi Arabia and the powerful Lebanese Hezbollah and its Iranian patrons.
