French MP BenoA�t Hamon said on Thursday that there was a great opportunity for France to enhance its partnership with Lebanon, whether at cultural, political or other levels and “if France wants to play a role in the Middle East, Beirut is an inevitable entrance for it.”
MP Hamon’s fresh words came during press conference held in the French parliament.
Hamon responded to NNA correspondent, Georges Sassine’s questions by saying that France cannot take decisions on behalf of Lebanese on the presidential elections.
He called the French government to exert further efforts to help Lebanon on the economic and security levels.
“The country is on the brink of the abyss, but we do not know where the edge is, and this is what distinguishes Lebanon,” remarked the French MP.
“No country can bear what Lebanon endures; it is facing a presidential vacuum, a locked up government, an efficient parliament, a refugee crisis, a zero growth rate and external threats,” he said.
