CCAF condemns French FM’s remarks on Turkey’s accession to EU

PanARMENIAN.Net - Co-ordination Council of Armenian organisations of France (CCAF) issued a statement condemning the French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius’s statement on positive signal to the authoritarian regime of Turkey.

As Paris-based independent journalist Jean Eckian told a PanARMENIAN.Net reporter, CCAF slams France’s decision to give its agreement to the opening of a new chapter in Turkey-EU talks.

“The initiative, issued by Laurent Fabius on February 12, is incomprehensible in the context of serious violations of freedoms in the country,” he said.

“This shocking decision of the French government is also considered in the context of racism and violence against minorities in Turkey (murder of Armenian women in Istanbul, anti-Kurdish repression, as well as January 9 assassination of 3 Kurdish activists in Paris” French student of Turkish origin Sevil Sevimli writes.

“Considering these events, Laurent Fabius’s announcement constitutes a provocation and an encouragement in the turpitude of the AKP. It expresses a cynical conception of the diplomacy, in total contradiction with the commitments affirmed by the president of the republic on the conditions of Turkey’s accession to the EU,” CCAF statement reads.
