Representatives of Coordination Council of Armenian Organizations
in France (CCAF) met on Saturday with President Nicolas Sarkozy to
discuss the bill penalizing denial of Armenian Genocide. French Senate
must examine the bill on May 4.

Despite the support of a majority of the Socialist party, communists
and some senators of UMP, the watchword of government may block the
adoption of the bill, journalist Jean Eckian reported from Paris.

Armenians will organize a demonstration in front of the French Senate
on Wednesday.
