French President to visit Armenia on April 24 – report

PanARMENIAN.Net - French President François Hollande is planning to visit Armenia on April 24, the Armenian Genocide Remembrance Day, Hürriyet Daily News reported, citing sources in the Elysee.

Hollande accepted the invitation of Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan in November 2012 to visit Armenia in 2013, the report said, adding that Hollande aims to issue a “strong genocide message” to the Armenian community in France before local elections in 2014.

However, the HDN says, the French president will not bring forth the bill that criminalizes denial of the Armenian Genocide to the Senate due to “technical difficulties” in the Constitution.
