How Macron’s Upcoming Visit To Lebanon Will Be Different

Anadolu Agency

French diplomatic sources told Al-Joumhouria daily on Saturday that the expected visit of French President Emmanuel Macron to Beirut will be “different” from the previous ones.

The sources went on to add that Macron will conduct this time “direct supervision of the mechanism of the French initiative,” which holds priority to the formation of a Lebanese government.

According to Naharnet, although the diplomatic sources did not set a specific date for Macron‘s visit to Beirut, it will not be delayed due to the “criticality” of the Lebanese file.

French diplomatic sources reportedly emphasized that French officials address the Lebanese file as a “priority” during the time being, unlike the case a few weeks ago.

The French president, who has been advocating a road map for reform in Lebanon, was expected to visit in December when his trip got canceled upon testing positive for COVID-19.
