French President Emmanuel Macron accused, in a press conference held today on the situation in Lebanon, the various Lebanese forces and those leading the institutions of clearly refusing to respect the pledges they made to France and the international community.
He said that the authority powers and leaders decided instead to betray the pledge, favoring their own interests above that of Lebanon, whereby no one was up to the commitments.
Macron, however, stressed that “France will not abandon the friendly Lebanese people, and the road map will continue, and this initiative will continue at the international level, and the formation of a mission government is up to the Lebanese authorities.”
“Hezbollah cannot be an army fighting Israel and a militia alongside Syria and a respectable party in Lebanon, and it has shown the opposite in recent days,” emphasized the French President.
He added: “Hezbollah did not honor the promise it made before me while looking me in the eye,” affirming that “both Hezbollah and Amal Movement refused to make concessions.”
