Some 3000 Turks gathered at French parliament building

PanARMENIAN.Net - According to the latest data, about 3000 Turks have gathered at the building of the French parliament to protest possible adoption of the bill criminalizing denial of the Armenian Genocide.

The French parliament is debating the bill, which envisages a year in jail and a fine of 45,000 euros for those who publicly deny the Armenian Genocide in France.

Turkey has piled pressure on France to drop the law ahead of the vote, with President Abdullah Gul and a Turkish delegation to Paris warning its adoption will spark a diplomatic crisis and have economic consequences.
