Saudi Arabia has pledged $3 billion for the Lebanese army to buy equipment from France, Lebanese President Michel Sleiman announced on Sunday.

The kingdom “decided to provide generous assistance to Lebanon in the form of $3 billion for the Lebanese army to strengthen its capabilities,” Sleiman said, adding that it was the largest grant of assistance provided in Lebanon’s history.

French President Francois Hollande, on a visit to Saudi Arabia, said his country would “meet” any requests from Lebanon.

“I am in touch with President Sleiman… If requests are addressed to us, we will meet them,” Hollande told reporters answering a question about Sleiman’s announcement that came as the French leader arrived in Riyadh for talks with King Abdullah.

The aid pledge comes amid mounting sectarian tension in Lebanon related to the war in neighbouring Syria.

Lebanon’s powerful Shiite Hezbollah movement is fighting alongside President Bashar al-Assad’s forces against an uprising that many Lebanese Sunnis support.

Saudi Arabia is a leading backer of the rebels battling Assad’s regime, which has relied on strong support from Shiite Iran.

  1. Laying the groundwork for the Sunni-Shiite war. In some ways, I think ‘let them’ kill each other. Good riddance. On the other hand, our liberals will scream for the West to let millions of them seek asylum in the West, bringing their mental disease to the West and destroying us.
