DUBAI (Reuters) - Lebanon’s Prime Minister Saad al-Hariri said on Monday it will be for the United Arab Emirates to disclose any initiative to support his country, as he leads a Lebanese delegation to Abu Dhabi seeking support for an ailing economy.

“The Lebanese media is waiting from me to announce an initiative, but I will leave this matter to the UAE. There will be a lot of rumours but, thanks to God, the atmosphere is good,” Hariri said in a series of tweets.

He added that his visit to the UAE where he met Crown Prince Mohammed bin Zayed left him very “optimistic”.
