Lebanon's Prime Minister-Designate Saad Hariri addressed Macron on Thursday evening following the French President infection with COVID-19 saying that his political initiative for Lebanon will not be abandoned.
"I sincerely wish the friend of Lebanon, President Macron, for a recovery and health. The most sincere wishes for a friend of Lebanon, President Macron, for a good health. Your initiative is a trust that we will not give up on, many challenges," Hariri added in a tweet.
French President Emmanuel Macron will cancel all his forthcoming trips, including a scheduled visit to Lebanon, after being diagnosed with COVID-19, a French presidency spokeswoman told Reuters on Thursday.
Macron’s Elysee office had earlier added in a statement that Macron would self-isolate but would continue to work and carry out duties remotely.
