BEIRUT - Lebanese President Michel Aoun convened talks on Monday with political leaders over the future of Prime Minister Saad al-Hariri's government after he postponed his shock resignation.



A senior Lebanese official said the consultations at the presidential palace in Baabda aimed to help Hariri's government "get back on its feet," after weeks of political instability triggered by Hariri's Nov. 4 resignation, announced in Riyadh.



Lebanese officials say Saudi Arabia forced Hariri to resign and held him against his will, triggering an intervention by France which led to his return to Beirut last week.
