BEIRUT, Lebanon 

Saudi Ambassador to Lebanon Walid Bukhari held talks Saturday in Beirut with the leader of the Lebanese Forces party, Samir Geagea.

The discussions dwelt on the domestic situation in Lebanon and regional developments, the official Lebanese news agency said, without giving any further details.

Saturday’s meeting comes amid a deep political crisis in Lebanon following the Aug. 4 explosion at the Beirut port, which shook the country to its core.

Saudi Arabia, along with a number of Arab and foreign countries, has refrained from providing support to Lebanon as a sign of dissatisfaction with the government of Hassan Diab.

Diab’s government, which has been accused of allying with Shia group Hezbollah, has resigned amid rising public anger in the wake of the port blast.
