The bill on criminalizing of the Armenian genocide denial is in the center of the French authorities' attention, French Ambassador to Armenia Henri Reynaud said at today's press-conference in Yerevan.
"When in January 2012 the French Parliament circulated a draft bill criminalizing the Armenian Genocide denial, the law appeared to be on the agenda of the France's Constitutional Council. In the result of the study the Council did not adopt the bill due to its being non-harmonized with the French Constitution", - Henri Reynaud said and added that no clear dates have been defined for the "return" and discussion of the bill at the Senate. "Currently the corresponding authorities are working in that direction to harmonize the bill", - Henri Reynaud said.
