Turkish Minister of EU Affairs and Chief Negotiator Egemen Bagis on Saturday said that the French administration thought about future elections instead of future generations.
Bagis's comments came after Armenian allegations pertaining to the incidents of 1915 entered French textbooks and reports that French President Francois Hollande was working on a draft law that would criminalize any rejection of the Armenian allegations regarding the 1915 incidents.
Speaking to the Anadolu Agency (AA), Egemen Bagis said that President Hollande should keep in mind the fate of his predecessor while working on such a draft law.
We do hope that Hollande will take into consideration the would-be costs of his draft law on the Armenian allegations related to the incidents of 1915, Bagis stressed.
"Turkey's history is one with pride and should be appreciated," Bagis also said.
