Azerbaijan, Baku, Feb.1 /Trend M.Aliyev/
Law on so-called "Armenian genocide" adopted by French Senate is inappropriate and unnecessary is said in response of deputy chairman of the French Senate, Jean-Claude Carle to the letter of the Youth Union of the ruling New Azerbaijan Party (NAP).
"French Parliament can't deal with the evaluation of the history, it is a deal of commission of historians and I consider that it would be appropriate to create the international group of historians. I hadn't participated in voting on the inappropriate and unnecessary draft law." Carle noted.
Carle said, current legislation and constitutional basis gives an opportunity to punish the negationists.
Members of NAP Youth Union sent a letter to Jean-Claude Carle which purpose is to protest against the adoption of draft law criminalizing the denial of "Armenian genocide" and to call the French Senate not to repeat mistake and injustice of the parliament's lower chamber.
"Armenian Diaspora and the State, realizing that the investigation and study of historical documents together with Turkey will not be able to substantiate their claims, are opposed to research and international debate on this issue. In this case, the adoption of the bill by the French Parliament without proved motives talks about the biased position of the country," the letter says.
