France and its partners work on a financing mechanism for Lebanon – Macron

“We are technically working with several partners in the international community so that at some point, (…) if the absence of government persisted, we could succeed in preserving a system under international constraint, which would then allow the funding of essential activities and support for the Lebanese people,” Macron told a news conference. Macron, who has led international aid efforts to France’s former colony, has been trying to increase pressure on Lebanon’s squabbling politicians to break months of deadlock on forming a new government and launch reforms to unlock foreign cash.

He said he would continue to defend a roadmap he proposed last September by putting “maximum pressure” on the various parties.
