France said Tuesday it would move quickly to answer a call from Lebanon for faster arms deliveries as it battles Islamist militants on the Syrian border.

"France is fully committed to supporting the Lebanese army... We are in close contact with our partners to quickly meet Lebanon's needs," deputy foreign ministry spokesman Vincent Floreani said.
