Le Drian to meet Wednesday with Berri and Mikati


French Presidential Envoy for Lebanon Jean-Yves Le Drian will visit Beirut next week in a bid to reactivate the presidential election file, media report said on Sunday.

"Meetings have been scheduled with Lebanese political officials and leaders and he will meet Wednesday with Parliament Speaker Nabih Berri and caretaker Prime Minister Najib Mikati," an informed source told ad-Diyar newspaper.

"The atmosphere ahead of his visit does not signal that he is carrying a new initiative," the source added.

French Ambassador to Lebanon Hervé Magro meanwhile told the Lebanese-French Parliamentary Friendship Committee that France is coordinating with Saudi Arabia and Qatar on the presidential file and that Le Drian's visit enjoys the support of the five-nation group on Lebanon, which comprises the U.S., France, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Egypt.

La France et le Liban, à l’instar de la France et de l’Afrique, c’est fini!

Vous pouvez remercier Nicolas Sarkozy, François Hollande et le pire de tous, le banquier des Rothschilds : Emmanuel Macron .

RIP Jacques Chirac, the last French president with charisma and friends all over the world.
