Lebanon's Hariri arrives in Paris ahead of talks with Macron

PARIS, Nov 18 (Reuters) - Lebanon's Saad al-Hariri arrived in Paris on Saturday ahead of talks with French President Emmanuel Macron, French media reported.

Hariri, who sparked a crisis by resigning as Lebanese prime minister on Nov. 4 while on a visit to Saudi Arabia, was seen leaving a Paris airport, French TV station BFM TV reported.

Macron said on Friday he would welcome Hariri in Paris on Saturday as Lebanon's prime minister and expected him to return to Beirut in the "coming days, weeks." (Reporting by Geert De Clercq; Editing by Hugh Lawson)
