Reports revealed that French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian will travel to Lebanon next week to discuss the political crisis there with senior officials.

The trip comes after Paris said it had started putting in place measures to restrict entry to France for some Lebanese officials on the grounds that they were blocking efforts to find a solution to Lebanon's political and economic crisis.

Sources familiar with the trip unveiled that Le Drian would travel on May 5 and hold meetings on May 6. He has requested meetings with President Michel Aoun and Speaker of the Parliament Nabih Berri, according to a note sent by the embassy.

Le Drian has also asked to meet Gebran Bassil, the leader of Lebanon's biggest Christian political bloc- The Free Patriotic Movement.
