French President not planning to visit Armenia, envoy says

PanARMENIAN.Net - The itinerary of French President François Hollande does not include a visit to Armenia on April 24, Laurent Bili, the French ambassador to Turkey said.

Earlier reports suggested that Mr. Hollande was planning to go to Yerevan on the Armenian Genocide Remembrance Day.
