France’s President Emmanuel Macron is slated to arrive in Qatar this Saturday for pivotal discussions centered on the Israel-Hamas conflict.

Qatar, recognized for its influential role in mediating between Israel and Hamas, including orchestrating a truce and facilitating a hostage agreement, will play host to this crucial dialogue.

During his visit, Macron is set to engage in extensive talks with Qatari Emir Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani in Doha.

The agenda for these high-level discussions encompasses a broad spectrum of topics pertinent to the Gaza Strip conflict.

Key points of conversation will include strategizing for a humanitarian ceasefire, negotiating the release of additional hostages, and laying the groundwork for further peace negotiations.

Notably, concerns are heightened over the continued captivity of at least four French nationals believed to be held by Hamas.

This diplomatic mission follows The French president's recent participation in the COP28 conference in Dubai.
