In a recent announcement, France's Minister of Armies, Sebastien Lecornu, confirmed France's decision to send urgent aid to the Lebanese army, including medical equipment and pharmaceuticals.

This declaration came on Friday, following Lecornu's meeting with Lebanese caretaker Prime Minister Najib Mikati in Lebanon.

Lecornu emphasized the necessity for all parties in the South to exercise rationality and wisdom to prevent matters from escalating further.

He stressed the importance of urgently addressing the hostage issue in Gaza and exploring a lasting resolution to the Palestinian issue.

Lebanese caretaker Prime Minister Najib Mikati and French Minister Lecornu evaluated the overall conditions in the country and the situation on the southern Lebanese borders during their meeting.

This discussion took place at the Grand Serail, the Lebanese government headquarters in the capital, Beirut, in the presence of the French ambassador to Lebanon, Hervé Magro, the accompanying delegation to the Minister, and Mikati's diplomatic advisor, Ambassador Boutros Assaker.

The meeting accentuated the close cooperation and coordination between the army and the United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL).

They acknowledged the significance of bolstering the international forces' tasks and establishing calm along the Blue Line, reinforcing the strong ties and ongoing support between France and Lebanon in these trying times.

The swift aid from France showcases its continued commitment to supporting stability and humanitarian needs in Lebanon amid the ongoing political and economic crises.
