Macron urges new Lebanese PM to undertake 'urgent' reforms

French President Emmanuel Macron on Friday urged the new Lebanese Prime Minister Najib Mikati to undertake "urgent" reforms to help his crisis-wracked country, as the two men met for the first time in Paris. After repeating previous criticism of Lebanon's political class, Macron told Mikati it was "urgent to implement measures and essential reforms" and that Lebanon "could count on" former colonial power France for support.
