PARIS, Oct. 28 (Xinhuanet) -- France will be always on the side of the Palestinian Authority leader Yasser Arafat, French Foreign Minister Michel Barnier declared Thursday.
"France, as I told you (Arafat) in Ramallah on June 30, will be always on your side to back your effort in favor of a just and negotiated peace," Barnier said.
"It is with concern and sympathy that I keep informed of the development of your health," said Barnier.
"I wish to express my most sincere wishes for your recovery, hoping that you can return rapidly to your place to lead the Palestinian [Terrorist] Authority," he said.
