Brussels, Belgium. The Regular Grand Lodge of Belgium suspended GLNF's recognition in 2012. Despite this, along with the Grand Lodges of Germany, Luxembourg, Austria and Switzerland, the Grand Lodge supported the formation of a French Masonic Confederation which would include the Grand Lodge of France, but things took an unexpected turn.
The Regular Grand Lodge of Belgium decided to recognize again GLNF, considered to be the sole Grand Lodge meeting the criteria of regularity and recognition throughout France. Belgium considers that the latest actions of GLdF are duplicitous and that GLdF does not comply to the Basel Declaration to which it was said they wish to adhere.
