Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri has "suspended" his resignation, which sparked a crisis when he announced it while in Saudi Arabia two weeks ago.

Hariri said President Michel Aoun had asked him to "put it on hold ahead of further consultations".

The two men held talks a day after Mr. Hariri flew back to Lebanon.

Mr. Hariri has denied that Saudi Arabia forced him to resign and detained him in an attempt to curb the influence of Iran and its Lebanese proxy Hezbollah.
