Caretaker Information Minister, Jamal Jarrah, on Thursday visited "TeleLiban" building in Hazmieh, in the company of France Medias Monde Director of Distribution in the Middle East and Turkey, Ahmed El-Cheikh.

After a tour in the premises of TL Hazmieh, the caretaker minister stressed the importance of re-launching the activities of the TV channel.

However, Jarrah went on to explain that the current condition of the building did not allow it kick start this project, but he confirmed that he would exert the necessary efforts and cooperate with France Medias Monde to provide donations and funds to restore the building and relaunch Canal 9 to broadcast French television programs that promote Francophonie in Lebanon.

Mr. El Cheikh for his part announced that he was working to revive the French channel from Hazmieh, "which the Lebanese will benefit from."

He finally indicated that action plans would be implemented once the condition of the building allowed it.
