1216) French Ambassador Condemns Genocide Denial Bill

French Ambassador to Ankara Jean Paul Poudade spoke out against the French parliament’s decision pass the law draft penalizing the denial of the so-called Armenian genocide.

Poudade termed the law as an “unnecessary and polemical decision.” . . .

Paying a visit to Hatay Governor Ahmet Kayhan, Poudade stated the French government did not support the decision and defended his views that this is not binding for all of France.

Recalling the 2007 presidential elections in his country, the ambassador said: “There are more important issues to discuss and this decision will soon be off the agenda. Everyone should face their own history. We are faced with our history from slavery to World War II.”

The ambassador noted that relations between the two countries were continuing at the highest level and added, “I do not think this decision will affect bilateral relations.”
