CAIRO, Oct 29 (Reuters) – Lebanese former Prime Minister Saad Hariri said on Friday that Iran-backed Hezbollah was responsible for the rift with Saudi Arabia and other Persian Gulf countries.

“The responsibility, first and foremost, in this regard, lies with Hezbollah, and its professed hostility towards the Arabs and the Persian Gulf’s Arab states,” the Sunni politician said in a tweet.
