France backs Hariri bid to break Lebanon deadlock

  • Hariri said that he will assist PM-designate Mustapha Adib in naming an FM from the Shiite community, chosen by Adib on the basis of “competence, integrity and lack of party affiliation”
  • Hariri described his initiative as “taking poison alone once again,” while the French foreign ministry praised his efforts as “courageous and in the national interest of Lebanon”
