Prime Minister Najib Miqati traveled Thursday to Paris for talks with French President Emmanuel Macron.
Political sources expected positive outcomes from Miqati’s visit to France, as “it could pave the way for more visits to Europe and to Arab countries.”
The Paris meeting could be the “French gate” to international support to Lebanon, the sources said.
They revealed to the PSP’s al-Anbaa newspaper that Miqati will talk with Macron about unblocking $11 billion that were pledged to Lebanon at CEDRE conference in Paris in 2018.
Miqati and Macron will also talk about the aid fund that was recently raised in the international conferences in support of Lebanon and how the European countries can contribute.
The talks will also tackle the required reforms that the government intends to achieve and reviving negotiations with the International Monetary Fund.
