Lebanon (22 October 2019)

France is paying close attention to the latest developments in Lebanon. It calls for maintaining the peaceful nature of the protests and strictly respecting the right of all Lebanese to demonstrate.

It once again encourages the Lebanese government to carry out the reforms needed to revive the Lebanese economy and enable the State to provide public services that directly benefit all Lebanese citizens.

France stands side by side with Lebanon. To that end, we are working with our international partners to promote the swift implementation of the decisions taken at the CEDRE conference in Paris in April 2018.
