Maronite Patriarch Beshara Rai will travel to Paris next week at the invitation of President Emmanuel Macron in what is seen as part of France's efforts to reiterate Lebanon's importance in the French-speaking world. During his two-day stay starting May 28, Rai will meet with Macron and other high-ranking officials.Macron, along with Egypt and the United States, played a key role in resolving a crisis sparked by the later-withdrawn resignation of Prime Minister Saad Hariri in November last year that thrust Lebanon into the center of regional jockeying between Saudi Arabia and Iran.In his meeting with Macron, Rai is expected to speak about the position of Christians in Lebanon and the wider region and the need for strengthened ties between the Maronite community and France.
