France and Saudis 'finalising' $3bn Lebanon arms deal

Published: 09.02.14, 08:29 / Israel News

Paris - France and Saudi Arabia are close to signing a $3 billion arms deal for Lebanon, the Elysee Palace said Monday following talks between President Francois Hollande and the Saudi crown prince.


"It will not be signed Monday but it is being finalised," an aide to the president said.


The deal is for military equipment and arms to be supplied to Lebanon's army.


Hollande told an official dinner at the Elysee presidential palace attended by Prince Salman bin Abdul Aziz, who is also the Saudi deputy prime minister and defence minister, that Lebanon was a "great but vulnerable country" which "needs security".
