    LAURENT FABIUS INTERVIEWED IN LE MONDE INTERVIEW GIVEN BY M. LAURENT
    FABIUS, MINISTER OF FOREIGN AFFAIRS, TO THE NEWSPAPER LE MONDE
    (EXCERPTS)

    France/Turkey/Armenian genocide law

    Q. - How are you going to mend the relationship with Turkey now that
    you've said you're in favour of the law criminalizing denial of the
    Armenian genocide?

    THE MINISTER - It's not easy. We had a very good meeting with
    President Gl in Chicago. On the Armenia issue, the decision of the
    Constitutional Council will have to be taken into account.

    Q. - Francois Hollande has pledged to move fast on adopting this law.

    THE MINISTER - Yes, but there are still legal constraints. Be that as
    it may, it's important to pick up the threads with Turkey, who plays
    a major role on the economic and diplomatic fronts - for example,
    on the Syria and Iran issues.
