France presidential advisor meets Hezbollah official in Beirut
A French presidential aide held talks Friday in Beirut with a Hezbollah official, the Shiite movement said, months after the EU listed the group's military wing as a terrorist organization.


Hezbollah said its international relations chief Ammar al-Moussawi discussed regional and local developments with Emmanuel Bonne, French President Francois Hollande's adviser for Middle East affairs. A French embassy source told AFP Bonne was in Lebanon for "talks with all political parties" and would be joined on Monday by the French army's chief of staff, Admiral Edouard Guillaud. (AFP)
