“Iran’s relations with all Arab countries — if not all Islamic (countries) — would be affected if Iran was supporting the coup that took place in Lebanon,” Faisal told reporters.
His comments came after six days of deadly sectarian fighting pitting Shiite opposition groups led by the Iranian- and Syrian-backed Hezbollah against supporters of the Western-backed government.
“The kingdom calls again upon all regional parties to respect Lebanon’s soverignty and independence, and to stop meddling in its internal affairs and poking sectarian unrest,” he said.
