French FM on Genocide: hope we can achieve fair reading of history

PanARMENIAN.Net - Armenian Genocide issue is a sensitive and difficult problem that has all too often cast a shadow over French-Turkish relations, according to French Foreign Minister.

“In Turkey, many criticize France for embracing the Armenian theses. In France, many feel that Turkey is trying to minimize, if not deny the tragedy that befell the ancestors of our compatriots of Armenian origin,” the article by Laurent Fabius published in Hurriyet Daily News reads.

“However, I do believe that the disappearance of the Armenian civilization from Anatolian soil warrants some thinking on Turkey’s part as to what is needed to heal the wounds opened in 1915.

I hope that one day soon, we can achieve a calm, fair reading of history. In the meantime, we should try to learn to live with respect for the diversity of the legacies of which we are the guardians,” Minister Fabius writes.
