/PanARMENIAN.Net/ Ignoring Turkish protests, the French lower house
of parliament approved a bill on Thursday making it a crime to deny
Armenians suffered a Genocide in 1915 at the hands of the Ottoman
Turks.

The Turkish Foreign Ministry said the vote would hurt ties between the
two NATO allies and analysts warned that it would complicate Turkey’s
efforts to secure European Union membership. "French-Turkish relations,
which have developed over centuries … have been dealt a blow today
as a result of the irresponsible false claims of French politicians
who do not see the political consequences of their actions," the
Turkish foreign ministry said in a statement, reports Reuters.
