Zaki noted that he would visit Saudi Arabia if need be, and the talks with President Aoun were positive.

 

He later visited Prime Minister Najib Mikati at the Grand Serail.

 

The latter stressed that “Lebanon is keen on returning relations with KSA and the Gulf to normal,” noting that “Lebanon will make efforts to resolve the differences.”

 

“The Arab League can play a crucial role in this matter,” he added.

 
Zaki continued his tour with a meeting with the Minister of Foreign Affairs Abdallah Bou Habib, who said "we welcome the Arab League's move, and we adhere to the League to make any effort among Arab countries to resolve crises."
 
In his turn, Zaki stressed that "we must continue to work hard because the relationship between Lebanon and the Gulf states, specifically Saudi Arabia, is an old and well-established relationship," emphasizing "the importance of this relationship regaining its momentum."
 

"There is more to the issue than meets the eyes, and it goes beyond the comments of a minister on the Saudi-led intervention in Yemen. This is an integrated position on the situation, it is what Saudi Arabia has condemned, and the position deviates from Arab decisions in regards to the Yemeni issue," he pointed out in a joint press conference following his meeting with Bou Habib.

 
Later in the day, Zaki met with Speaker Nabih Berri, whereby he said that the aim of his visit is not to propose solutions to Lebanese-Gulf row, adding that “Kordahi’s resignation has been raised, and President Aoun is keen on the relation with Saudi Arabia.”
