Report: Paris may suspend Le Drian's mission
Following the Lebanese opposition’s rejection of the latest French letter that demanded answers related to the presidential file, the French officials in charge of the Lebanon file have started “evaluating” the situation, a media report said.
“There are indications that there will be a new French approach in dealing with the file, topped by the suspension of the mission of French presidential envoy Jean-Yves Le Drian,” al-Liwaa newspaper reported on Friday.
Le Drian is expected to return to Lebanon in September.
The main components of Lebanon’s parliamentary opposition have rejected dialogue with Hezbollah in the wake of the Kahale clash, vowing to escalate their political confrontation.
