Former Lebanese prime minister Saad Al-Hariri met on Wednesday Field Marshal and deputy prime minister Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi in Cairo.

The head of the Lebanese Future Party is in Cairo to discuss recent developments in Lebanon and foreign interference in its internal affairs, in addition to matters of concern to both countries.

On his first visit to Egypt since the 25 January revolution, Hariri arrived with a delegation of Lebanese officials on Tuesday for a two-day visit, stated the leader's media office, during which he is also scheduled to meet Egypt’s interim president Adly Mansour and Minister of Foreign Affairs Nabil Fahmy.

Lebanon has been rocked by a string of car and suicide bomb attacks in recent months, many of which targeted strongholds of the Hezbollah movement in apparent retribution for its role in Syria.

On 15 February, Lebanon formed a government after more than 330 days of deadlock between rival political blocs.
