Ambassador of France H.E.  Claire Le Flecher, held a dinner reception at her residence in honor of the renowned French journalist and writer Georges Malbrunot, during which wide ranging discussions were held.

The reception was attended by heads of leading Arabic and English publications and cordial exchange of regional and international developments were discussed.

George Malbrunot is a French journalist and regional expert working for the French daily Le Figaro. In 2004, he was taken hostage by the Islamic Army in Iraq, along with Christian Chesnot, a fellow journalist working for Radio France, and their Syrian driver Muhammed al-Jundi. The terrorists gave the French government a 48-hour deadline to repeal its law against girls wearing the Muslim veil in school. Though the demand was not met, the two journalists and the driver were later released.
