France will not let Lebanon down, a source close to French president Emmanuel Macron told Reuters on Saturday (26 September), following the decision of its prime minister-designate to quit after trying for almost a month to line up a non-partisan cabinet, write Michel Rose and Matthias Blamont.

“Lebanon’s Adib stepping down amounts to a ‘collective betrayal’ by Lebanese political parties,” the source said. The source also said Macron would make a statement at a later stage.

Mustapha Adib, former ambassador to Berlin, was picked on Aug. 31 to form a cabinet after Macron’s intervention secured a consensus on naming him in a country where power is shared out between Muslims and Christians.
