“You have had a keen eye for the fact that the French Senate is moving toward lifting sanctions and I am sending you a message that it would be actively engaged in these activities not only in France, but through a parliamentary dialogue  with all European countries,” Jean Bizet said at a meeting in the upper house of the Russian parliament, the Federation Council.
