French President Emmanuel Macron said on Tuesday that he does not know newly designated Prime Minister Mostapha Adib, voicing hopes that he “has the required efficiency.”
Macron’s comments were made during his tour at the damaged sites in Beirut port whereby he noted that he suggested “a follow-up mechanism for the next few months.”

“We will not release the funds of Cedar Conference as long as reforms are not implemented,” he stressed.
He also stressed importance of the swift formation of a new Cabinet, the implementation of reforms in the electricity sector, fighting corruption, among others.
On another note, Macron said that the current Parliament was elected by the Lebanese people, adding that the people must produce a new political reality during the next parliamentary elections.
“Hezbollah is a party that represents a part of the Lebanese people and has been elected, there is a partnership today between this party and several other parties, and if we do not want Lebanon to slide into a model in which terrorism dominates at the expense of other matters, then Hezbollah and other parties must be made aware about their responsibilities,” he added.
Macron concluded by saying that the "truth of the numbers" in the Lebanese banking system needed to be known, calling for an audit.
