Sarkozy welcomed Suleiman to the presidential Elysee Palace for a brief conversation on Saturday. Suleiman told reporters afterward that the two also discussed Lebanon’s two-year term on the U.N. Security Council.
Suleiman had a three-day state visit to France in March that was meant to bolster his image in the West as a guarantor of stability in a restive region.
Lebanon is a former French protectorate, and the two countries retain close ties.
