Saudi, France want Lebanese in charge of their own military

Saudi Arabia and France stressed in a joint statement issued after talks between French President Emmanuel Macron and Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman that the Lebanese government needs to “carry out comprehensive reforms.”

It also needs to “abide by the Taef Accord, which is entrusted with national unity and civil peace in Lebanon,” the statement said.

The statement also called for “limiting the possession of arms to the legitimate institutions of the Lebanese state,” while emphasizing that “Lebanon should not be a launchpad for any acts of terror that would undermine the region’s security and stability, nor a source for the trade of drugs.”
