President Macron visits Lebanon

It has been less than a month since President Macron last visited Lebanon. This past week, he travelled to Lebanon once again to meet with representatives of the Lebanese political factions. The aim of the trip was to persuade these representatives to change the current political and economic system by supporting a revision of the government and putting in place initiatives to fight corruption. President Macron warned that unless these changes are put in place, sanctions against the personal wealth of the political elite would be put in place.
