French Ambassador to Lebanon, Bruno Foucher, on Friday delivered a message to the Lebanese people upon the advent of the new year, wishing them prosperity and peace.

“France will remain by Lebanon’s side just like the past,” the Ambassador stressed in his message.

“2018 was an exceptional year, whereas 3 conferences had been organized upon an initiative by France, in addition to holding the parliamentary elections,” he continued.

“Certainly, we would prefer to witness the formation of the government by the end of the year; this is an essential matter to carry on building partnership with Lebanon,” he said.

“The government formation is necessary for the future, so that we should be able to continue bolstering our relation with this country,” he underlined.

“We also want peace and stability for Lebanon,” he added.
