Advisor to the mayor of Paris, Mr. Berto assured the meeting that the decision on what kind of Cathedral will be restored, will be taken by the authorities together with the Parisians.
The topic of the current foreign policy of France caused a lively debate. Responding to Vera Ageeva, associate Professor at the HSE Department of Political Science in St. Petersburg, Mr. Frassa said that France has a long history of active foreign policy position on a wide range of international issues and, as a medium-sized power, implements an independent foreign policy course in accordance with the national interests of France.
