The new French Ambassador to Lebanon, Anne Grillo, arrived in Beirut late on Wednesday and made her first statement from Lebanon in a tweet.
“Very happy to have arrived in Beirut and to take over as the head of the @AmbaFranceLiban (French Embassy in Lebanon) to continue France’s unfailing commitment alongside Lebanon and the Lebanese,” Grillo said.
Her diplomatic mission to Lebanon coincides with a number of French ambassador replacements in the region, including in the UAE and Saudi Arabia.
Responding to her tweet about Lebanon, caretaker Minister of Foreign Affairs Charbel Wehbe wished Grillo success in her duties as the head of the French Embassy in Beirut.
