Baku, Azerbaijan, Oct. 23
French President Francois Hollande will visit Armenia in April 2015. President Hollande will participate in the events of the 100th anniversary of the so-called "Armenian genocide", the Armenian media reported Oct. 22 with reference to the French ambassador to Armenia Henry Reynaud.
President Hollande said in Paris on April 24, 2014 that he will visit Armenia on the same day of 2015. This statement was confirmed during President Hollande's visit to Armenia in May, the diplomat said.
Armenia and the Armenian lobby claim that Turkey's predecessor the Ottoman Empire allegedly carried out 'genocide' against the Armenians living in Anatolia in 1915.
While strengthening the efforts to promote the so-called "genocide" in the world, Armenians have achieved its recognition by the parliaments of some countries.
