A day before Macron's visit to Lebanon, a petition was created calling for the return of governance to France.
After the explosion at the port of Beirut in Lebanon, a petition was created calling for the return of the country to French control, Al Arabiya reported on Friday, August 7.
It is noted that the petition addressed to French President Emmanuel Macron was published the day before he visited Lebanon.
вЂњThe Lebanese officials have shown a complete inability to ensure the security and governance of the country. We believe that Lebanon should return to French control in order to establish a smooth and lasting government, вЂњ the petition says.
The petition has already been signed by more than 60 thousand people.
As you know, France ruled Lebanon from 1923 to 1944. Paris then handed over power to the Lebanese government.
Recall that during Macron's visit To Beirut, a crowd of people shouted accusations of terrorism at the President of Lebanon.
