U.S., French Ambassadors Hold Talks with Saudi Counterpart


Saudi Ambassador to Lebanon Walid Bukhari on Monday held talks at the embassy in Beirut with U.S. Ambassador to Lebanon Dorothy Shea and French Ambassador to Lebanon Anne Grillo, the Saudi embassy said.

A statement issued by the embassy said the meeting tackled “the political developments in the Lebanese and regional arenas and issues of common interest.”

The meeting comes days after the U.S. and French ambassadors held rare talks in Saudi Arabia over the situation in Lebanon.

During that visit, Grillo and Shea stressed the “desperate need” for “a fully empowered (Lebanese) government that is committed to and able to implement reforms.”
