DYP LEADER AGAR SPEAKS OUT AGAINST FRANCE’S ARMENIAN BILL

Opposition True Path Party (DYP) leader Mehmet Agar yesterday spoke
about against the French bill to criminalize denial of the so-called
Armenian genocide, saying, `We want to believe that a group of French
parliamentarians’ unfortunate efforts to cast a shadow on Turkish
history won’t resonate in the Parliament.’ He added, `The entire
world is watching and condemning with us the French parliamentarians
behind this move and the situation they put themselves and their
country in before the European Union, which they want to be a leader
of. Turkey finds it unnecessary to remind those behind this bill of
regrettable periods of history such as those in North Africa and
Algeria.’ /Cumhuriyet/
