Lebanon - Q&A - Excerpts from the daily press briefing (10.11.17)


Q - The Minister said this morning that “it’s important for him (Saad al-Hariri) to make his decisions himself”. Do you have any indications that Hariri is incapable of making his own decisions?

Q - Have you been able to visit Mr Saad al-Hariri, and have you noticed the freedom of movement Jean-Yves Le Drian spoke about this morning?

A - Our Ambassador to Saudi Arabia visited Mr Saad al-Hariri at his home, on returning from the visit he paid to the United Arab Emirates, to which the Minister referred this morning.

As the Minister said, we would like Mr Saad al-Hariri to have full freedom of movement and be fully capable of playing his essential role in Lebanon.
