“I will make my third visit to Lebanon after verifying basic matters, and we will do everything to form a government in Lebanon even if it is incomplete in specifications,” Macron said in an interview with Al-Arabiya.
Macron briefly talked about the political crisis Lebanon is facing as the country’s political leaders fail to reach an agreement that would allow the formation of a government capable of enacting reforms.
“The Lebanese system is in trouble because of the devilish alliance between corruption and intimidation,” he said, stressing that the French initiative is “the only one that allows progress toward a solution in Lebanon.”
