NNA - Lebanese Forces leader, Samir Geagea, on Friday cabled French President Emmanuel Macron, hereby congratulating him on his victory in the French presidential polls.


"Amid the troubles that are storming our world, you are facing, Mr. President, too many dangerous challenges; terrorism for instance is striking without any discrimination between borders, identities, colors, beliefs, and religions," Geagea said in his cable.


"Undoubtedly, facing this hatred is a challenge we have in common," he added.


Geagea also reminded that the Palestinian Cause had been waiting for a permanent just solution.


"Lebanon shares with France the great values of freedom, equality, and fraternity. Lebanon is the sole refuge for democracy in the Arab world.


"The deep-rooted ties between our countries are a rare model in history and they require mutual cooperation and support," he concluded.
