/PanARMENIAN.Net/ Thirty-three French journalists, who came to Istanbul
to see famous photographer Goksin Sipahioglu's exhibition, condemned
France for the adoption of the Armenian Genocide bill. "France
made a historical mistake. We hope it will take step back," said
Le Monde and Le Figaro reporters. According to French Ambassador
to Turkey Paul Poudade, it is too early to say that the bill will
be adopted. "There is a long procedure ahead of it. I don't think
that it will be adopted. It is an unnecessary law. The government is
absolutely against the bill," he said, reported zaman.com.
