Saudi Arabia will "extend a hand of support to Lebanon," Lebanese former Prime Minister Najib Mikati said on Monday after meeting Saudi King Salman.

The king "stressed the necessity of preserving Lebanon and soon there will be Saudi steps towards the Lebanese state," Mikati told Lebanon's LBC TV from Riyadh.
