France Regrets Lebanese Government Not Yet Formed But Says There Is Still Time | World | News


PARIS (Reuters) – France on Wednesday said it regretted that Lebanese politicians failed to form a government two weeks after French President Emmanuel Macron set the September 15 deadline, but that it was not too late yet, a presidential official said on Wednesday.

“France regrets that Lebanese political leaders have failed to deliver on the commitments made to President Macron on September 1, 2020, according to the announced schedule,” the official told Reuters.

“It is not yet too late: everyone must assume their responsibilities and finally act in the sole interest of Lebanon by allowing Moustapha Adib to form a government commensurate with the gravity of the situation. ”
