  • Lebanon - Hezbollah (Q&A - Excerpt from the daily press briefing - 23.05.13)

    France is attached to Lebanon’s stability and its relations with all Lebanese communities. We urge all Lebanese parties to uphold the commitments made in the Baabda Declaration of June 15, 2012, aimed at disassociating Lebanon from the war in Syria. By intervening on a massive scale in Syria, Hezbollah departs from this consensus. Syria’s war is not Lebanon’s war. Importing it to Lebanon jeopardizes its stability, as shown by the increased tensions in the country.
