G. Manoyan: French authorities didn’t want to upset Turkey

`French authorities headed by President Sarkozy didn’t want to upset
Turkey, thus they have declined the bill, saying those issues have no
place in legal framework,’ Head of the Hay Dat office for political
affairs, Armenian Revolutionary Federation Dashnaktsutyun (ARF-D),
Giro Manoyan told Panorama.am.

French Senate has failed yesterday the approval of Armenian Genocide
bill making the denial of the Armenian Genocide under Ottoman-era a
crime.

`France, being against Turkish membership to EU family, at the same
time didn’t want to upset them in other issues,’ Mr. Manoyan said.
