BEIRUT: MP Walid Jumblatt could meet with French President Francois Hollande during a visit to France scheduled for mid-December, the Progressive Socialist Party leader said in remarks published Saturday.

Jumblatt, who spoke to As-Safir newspaper, said the meeting with Hollande would, should it take place, aim at supporting the PSP leader’s centrist position in Lebanon.

Jumblatt has avowed a centrist position in Lebanese politics amid the deep divisions between the country’s rival March 8 and March 14 camps.

Last month, Jumblatt said he launched an initiative to prevent Sunni-Shiite strife and to encourage all parties to return to the National Dialogue table.

The March 14 opposition has boycotted the all-party talks as well as government work over the recent assassination of Brig. Gen. Wissam al-Hasan, who headed the police’s Information Branch.
