BRUSSELS (Reuters) – All politicians in Lebanon must be free to travel in order to allow the country’s political crisis to be resolved, France’s foreign minister said on Monday. “To reach a political solution in Lebanon, all political figures must have complete freedom of movement,” Jean-Yves Le Drian told reporters when asked about Saad al-Hariri, who announced his resignation as the country’s prime minister from Saudi Arabia. Le Drian also called on other countries not to interfere in Lebanon, saying that was a “basic principle.”
