Lebanon – Aid comes with a price

Earlier this year I mused whether Carlos Ghosn could become the next PM of Lebanon.

Earlier this year I mused whether Carlos Ghosn could become the next PM of Lebanon.

Interestingly, France is showing interest (offering aid) in Beirut’s affairs following the recent destruction at its port.

n.b. Mr Ghosn has Lebanese and French nationality and was once Chairman & CEO of Renault.

and we can’t discount pending influence from Iran (see Hezbollah) and Turkey. (in other news Turkish/Greek tensions are rising again)

Ghosn won’t likely get a call now as President Aoun will need to be seen pursuing a traditional and diplomatic candidate initially.

It doesn’t cost anything to speculate on such things and nothing seems far-fetched in politics anymore.
