CHIRAC & FRENCH GOVERNMENT AGAINST ARMENIAN BILL
Oct 11 2006
The French government and the ruling party have differing views on
the Armenian bill. Both the French president and the French government
evidently oppose the Armenian bill in the French National Assembly.
Chirac repeated his opposition even in his speeches in Armenia, where
he mostly dwelled on the issue. However, Internal Affairs Minister
Nicholas Sarkozy and his right hand man Patrick Deveciyan support
the Armenian bill. By supporting the bill, Sarkozy may be trying
to undermining Chirac’s camp, his main opponent in the upcoming
Foreign Minister Douste Blazy made a strong speech last May speaking
out against the bill.
