A French Military delegation will arrive in Lebanon next week to follow up discussions over the Saudi grant to the military institution to purchase French weapons, An Nahar newspaper reported on Wednesday.

According to the daily, the delegation will tackle with Lebanese high-ranking military officials the mechanism of handing over arms to the Lebanese army.

President Michel Suleiman had revealed in late December that Saudi Arabia has decided to donate three billion dollars with the aim of purchasing French weapons for the Lebanese army as soon as possible.
