PanARMENIAN.Net - A recent decision to include a chapter on the
Armenian Genocide in French history textbooks was made out of the
knowledge of French President Francois Hollande, according to Hurriyet
Daily News.

As Hollande reportedly said during the 20th Annual Ambassador's
Conference in Paris, he did not give any instruction for the new
regulation.

"I do not know about this effort. It's absolutely out of my knowledge,"
Hollande said. "Changes in the books are prepared by commissions
... The desicion does not come from me, but I will ask and learn
where it comes from."
