President of France Francois Hollande called Mourad Papazian, co-chairman of Coordination Council of Armenian organizations of France, to reaffirm loyalty to his commitments.

Hollande said he would not give up either of his commitments on the Armenian Genocide issue, assuring the bill criminalizing denial of genocides will be put to the vote, Nouvelles d`Arménie reports. Hollande said he would meet with Armenians in July.

“Government’s policy is the policy of Hollande, not Fabius. Hollande never betrayed us. However, we will be on alert. Turkey can change the course quickly,” Papazian wrote on his Facebook wall.

As reported earlier, during the press conference with his Turkish counterpart, French FM Laurent Fabius made it clear that France will not have a new law criminalizing the denial of the Armenian Genocide.
