    The United States is urging all parties to respect Lebanon's sovereignty.

    Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is backing Prime Minister Saad Hariri after he suddenly announced his resignation from the Saudi capital Riyadh last week.

    Hariri remains in Saudi Arabia and Lebanese officials are demanding his return.

    Al Jazeera's Patty Culhane reports from Washington, DC.
