Nicolas Sarkozy and Carla Bruni Visiting Beirut
Former French President Nicolas Sarkozy and his wife and well-known singer Carla Bruni visited Lebanon on Sunday. They reportedly landed in Beirut at 7:30 pm and were greeted by the French ambassador Bruno Foucher and the President of Beiteddine Art Festival Nora Joumblatt.
The main purpose for the couple’s visit has nothing to do with politics: Bruni is actually performing at the Beiteddine Art Festival! This year is the 33rd Beiteddine Art Festival, and it started in early July. If you haven’t seen the multitalented performer yet, book your seats now, because shows will come to an end on August 11.
During their stay in the country of Cedars, the former president and ex first lady took the opportunity to meet our president,General Michel Aoun on Monday. It is also said that Walid Joumblatt is meeting with Sarkozy soon.
