President of France Francois Hollande had a dinner with French historians at Elysee Palace on July 6.

One of the issues discussed during the event with the participation of prominent historians Colette Beaune, Michelle Perrot, Michel Winock, Benjamin Stora, Jean-François Sirinelli, Jean-Noël Jeanneney, Pascal Ory and Pierre Nora was the Armenian Genocide bill, Nouvelles d`Arménie writes referring to L’Express magazine.

The magazine said historian Pierre Nora, known as supporter of genocide denial, “tried to dissuade the President but in vain. Three days later the President said he had not given up the idea of criminalizing the denial of the Armenian Genocide.”
