Lebanese leaders did not abide by the pledges they made in front of Macron – Al-Manar TV website – Lebanon


French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian said on Friday that all Lebanese leaders have not honored the pledges they made to French President Emmanuel Macron.

In an interview with the Lebanese newspaper “An-Nahar”, he indicated that his meetings with the three presidents came from the standpoint of what they represent constitutionally and not “favoritism.”

The French minister affirmed that his country would mobilize the international community to hold parliamentary elections on schedule in Lebanon.

Le Drian will leave Lebanon on Friday without holding a press conference, as is customary.

Le Drian had met yesterday, Thursday, Lebanese President Michel Aoun in Baabda Palace and Parliament Speaker Nabih Berri at his residence in Ain al-Tineh, while Prime Minister-designate Saad Hariri met in the evening at the Senoub Palace, the headquarters of the French Embassy in Lebanon.

Le Drian also met at the Senoub Palace yesterday evening, groups of civil society forces, the head of the Independence Movement, Michel Moawad, and the head of the Phalange Party, Sami Gemayel, and others.
