Rwanda - Q&A from the press briefing (15 February 2021)


Q : Does the Quai d’Orsay have any comment about the publication of an official diplomatic telegram from 1994 asking the French ambassador vis-à-vis [Operation] Turquoise to allow the authorities responsible for the genocide to leave?

A : In accordance with the President’s wishes, work is currently being carried out by a commission of historians and researchers chaired by Vincent Duclert. This commission benefits from access to all the available French archives relating to Rwanda between 1990 and 1994 and will deliver its report before 7 April 2021.
