France's foreign minister heads to Lebanon on Monday as part a renewed attempt to get the country's feuding leaders to agree on the election of a new president, his ministry said. Bernard Kouchner - who was in Berlin for a joint meeting of the French and German Cabinets - will travel to Beirut from the German capital, arriving Monday evening, Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Pascale Andreani said. The trip was expected to last 24 hours, she said. Kouchner will meet Tuesday with Cardinal Nasrallah Sfeir, the head of the Maronite Church, and other Lebanese public figures, Andreani said, without giving any other details. The trip "fits within the framework of France's continuous effort in favor of an understanding between the parties" in Lebanon, she said.
