Paris: French Prime Minister Edouard Philippe said Tuesday that Lebanon's Saad Hariri must be able to return home from Saudi Arabia to end uncertainty caused by his shock resignation as prime minister.

"What's at stake is Mr Hariri being able to return home freely to clarify his situation in line with the Lebanese constitution," Philippe told parliament, saying his resignation, announced in Saudi Arabia, had caused "a period of uncertainty".
