The meeting will take place amid the ongoing offensive of the Libyan National Army (LNA), headed by Field Marshal Khalifa Haftar, on Tripoli. Sarraj and Macron will discuss the latest developments around the LNA's operation with an emphasis on the humanitarian situation and efforts to bring the conflict in the country to an end.
The negotiations come as part of Sarraj's tour around major European capitals in a bid to enlist the European Union's support in confronting Haftar's offensive. Sarraj's talks with Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte on Tuesday became the first in a series of meetings with EU leaders.
The sides attempted to organise national elections this year, however, after clashes in April LNA Head Haftar ordered an offensive on Tripoli, stating there were alliances between the GNA and terrorist groups in the country.
