BEIRUT (Reuters) - President Michel Aoun told Saudi Arabia's envoy to Lebanon on Friday that Saad al-Hariri must return to the country, Lebanese media reported.

Aoun also told the Saudi Charge d'Affaires Walid al-Bukhari that the circumstances of Hariri's resignation were unacceptable, the reports said. Hariri resigned while in Saudi Arabia last Saturday.
