Turkey - (Q&A - Excerpt from the daily press briefing - January 31, 2012)

Q : Turkey has just welcomed the fact that the law on Armenian genocide has been referred to the Constitutional Council. Turkey is talking about an easing of tensions with France. What’s your response?

A : Firstly, with respect to the appeal, I would like to reaffirm that this relates to a parliamentary initiative regarding which it is now up to the Constitutional Council to give a ruling.

Regarding our relations with Turkey, I will confine myself to reaffirming that we have already had the opportunity on several occasions to signal our attachment to our relations with Turkey, which is an important partner for France in all areas. It’s in this spirit that we will continue to work with the Turkish authorities.
