    Hariri to stay as prime minister, Aoun tells newspaper

    Prime Minister Saad Hariri will retain the premiership, and Lebanon’s political crisis will be resolved “within days,” President Michel Aoun said in an interview published Wednesday in Italian newspaper La Stamp.
    Aoun told the publication that the political crisis sparked by Hariri’s shock resignation announcement, and the prime minister’s subsequent decision to postpone his step-down, “will be definitively solved within days.”
    The president added, “We have just finished deliberations with all the political forces in the country. There is a wide agreement.”
