UAE, Saudi, Kuwait advise citizens against Lebanon travel
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation urged UAE citizens to avoid travelling to Lebanon from the UAE.
The UAE, Saudi Arabia and Kuwait advised their citizens against travelling to Lebanon on Thursday.
In a statement issued on Thursday, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation urged the UAE citizens to completely avoid travelling to Lebanon from the UAE or from any other country.
Saudi Arabia urged its citizens to leave Lebanon "as soon as possible", days after Lebanese prime minister Saad Al Hariri announced his resignation while visiting the kingdom.
A foreign ministry source, quoted by state news agency SPA, also called on Saudis not to travel to Lebanon.
"Due to the situation in the Republic of Lebanon, the kingdom asks its nationals visiting or living in Lebanon to leave as soon as possible, and advises its citizens not to travel there," the source said.
Bahrain did the same earlier in the week.
Kuwait also ordered its citizens in Lebanon to immediately leave the country.
Kuwait's foreign ministry said in a statement on Thursday that its decision was taken "as a precaution for any negative repercussions" in Lebanon.
