Prime Minister Saad Hariri Monday said he would resign from his post if Hezbollah refuses to accept changes to the current status quo.

In a radio interview, De Freij stressed that Lebanon was a small country and "must not interfere in the crises surrounding it", calling for "reaching consensus over mechanisms to apply the principle of dissociation".

Saudi Arabia has been backing the Yemeni government in its battle against Iranian-backed Houthi rebels, who are now in control of the country's capital Sanaa.

In that speech, Hariri blamed interference in Lebanon by Iran and its Lebanese ally Hezbollah for his decision, adding that he feared an assassination attempt. He did not elaborate on the new arrangement he was proposing. But he rescinded the move after returning home, to allow time for negotiations. Since returning to Beirut, Hariri has said all Lebanese must stick by the state policy of "disassociation", or keeping out of regional conflicts -a reference to Hezbollah. Hezbollah denies playing a military role in Yemen but has fighters in both Iraq and Syria.
