It also needs justice in order to rise, explaining that France will continue to help Lebanon with its partners, considering that the Lebanese investigation that was suspended for several months must be completely independent and free from any political interference.

He also considered that the agreement reached with the International Monetary Fund (IMF) must be implemented because it constitutes an important stage for the restoration of Lost investor confidence in Lebanon.

“Such a conflict is not in the interest of any Lebanese side. In this regard, it is important not to politicize the very difficult issue of border demarcation with Israel,” he said.
