After the French Senate passed the Armenian Genocide bill French
President Nicolas Sarkozy once again sent a letter to Turkish Prime
Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
The Turkish periodical “Vatan” reports that in the letter, Sarkozy
said in particularly, “The law French Senate approved, does not target
any particular country, and Turkey should take into account its common
interests with France”.

127 votes for and 86 against. The bill envisages one year prison term
and a fine of 45,000 euros for anyone who publicly denies the fact
of Armenian Genocide.
