Q&A - (10 February 2023)


Yesterday the French Senate recognized the Assyrian-Chaldean genocide of 1915-1918. What consequences will that have?

Under the separation of powers, the decision to include this topic on the agenda and to vote on this resolution is the Senate’s alone. It does not implicate the Government, whose position was expressed on Wednesday by Olivier Becht, Minister Delegate for Foreign Trade, Economic Attractiveness and French Nationals Abroad, attached to the Minister for Europe and Foreign Affairs.
