MP Simon Abi Ramia hosted a luncheon banquet at his home in Ehmej on Saturday in honor of the French Senate delegation, compromising French-Lebanese Friendship Committee Chair in the French Senate Christine Lavard and Committee members, in presence of the French Parliamentary Friendship Committee Head in the Lebanese Senate, MP Ibrahim Azar, and Deputies Alain Aoun and Tarek al-Merehbi, alongside the personal representative of the President of the Republic in the Organization of La Francophonie, Jarjoura Hardan.

The luncheon was a chance for the attendees to discuss the historical bilateral relationship between Lebanon and France and the importance of the role France is currently playing in helping Lebanon get out of its crisis.
