French government sacks Christophe Farnaud over disagreement on Libya

The Head of the East and North Africa department at the French Foreign Ministry, Christophe Farnaud, was sacked following disagreements related to the Libyan file with Paul Soler, a member of the diplomatic cell in the Elysee, according to what was reported by the Lebanese newspaper Al-Akhbar, denying rumors that the reason for the dismissal was due to differences over Lebanon.

In an official statement, the French Foreign Ministry said that Christophe Farnaud’s dismissal was due to “behavioral errors” in the management of daily work.

The Deputy Director of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Anne Geguin, was appointed to the position of Christophe Farnaud, who served as the Macron administration’s special envoy to Libya between 2018 and 2020, in addition to holding previous positions in foreign intelligence.
