Saudi Prince Abdul Rahman Bin Musaid has launched an attack on the resigned Lebanese Minister of Information George Kordahi against the backdrop of his recent statements.

The Saudi prince published a tweet stating: "He says that he resigned in order not to expose the Lebanese in the Gulf to harm! The Lebanese would not have been harmed in the Gulf; Saudi Arabia announced this explicitly in its statement. He is a liar before a minister… even when he resigned!"

The prince posted a copy of the kingdom's statement: "The kingdom's government asserts its fondness of the Lebanese citizens residing in the kingdom, whom it considers part of the fabric and bond that unites the Saudi people and their Arab brothers residing in the kingdom."

He added in a second tweet: "The French desire in your resignation, is it not considered an interference in sovereignty? I repeat to you the same question: Are not you a sovereign country? Where is your sovereignty, Mr George?!"

Lebanese Minister of Information Kordahi announced his resignation, expressing in a press conference in Beirut that his resignation is an opportunity to resolve the crisis caused by his statements.
