Hollande to welcome Iran's Rouhani but not for lunch
A formal lunch between the French president and his Iranian counterpart during this week's historic meeting was scrapped after the Elysée Palace reportedly refused Iran's request to serve up halal meat and no wine.
Iranian president Hassan Rouhani will begin his historic visit to France on Wednesday after being invited by François Hollande last year.
However the pair won't be dining together as originally planned.
