Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri on Thursday accepted an invitation from French President Emmanuel Macron to come to Paris for a respite from the ongoing regional tension created by his surprise resignation nearly two weeks ago. Macron said the Wednesday invite to Hariri and his family was for a few days and not an offer of political exile. Hariri caused shockwaves throughout the region Nov. 4 when he announced his resignation during a trip to Saudi Arabia, where he has remained ever since.
