Paris, France. On 28 November, Grand Master Marc Henry issued a statement to members of the Grand Lodge of France presenting the situation regarding the negotiations held for the "unification" of the French Masonic landscape.
GLdF's leaders hosted in recent months a series of bilateral meetings with other Masonic organizations in France (GLTSO, LNF, GL-AMF and GLIF). The Grand Masters have discussed on the autonomy of the Grand Lodges, respecting the independence of all practiced rites, on a Masonic conduct that falls within the Masonic tradition and regularity.
In the view of the Grand Lodge of France, the French Masonic union can formed with the existence of a national confederation.
