Roukoz, French MP discuss situation of Christians in Middle East

Deputy Shamel Roukoz met this Friday with French MP Guindal Royar who said, in the wake of the meeting: "I visited Rep. Roukoz today as a member of the Defense and Armed Forces Committee, and I thus confirmed France's support to the Lebanese Army, since MP Roukoz was the former commander-in-chief of the LAF Commandos Regiment, and a current member of the Parliamentary Defense Committee."

"I am also here in my capacity as Head of the Support Group for the Christians of the East in the National Assembly in France. We discussed, in this regard, the situation of Christians in Lebanon and the Middle East and ways to bolster cooperation between France and Lebanon so as to contribute to improving the status of Christians in the region," he said.
