Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The French Parliament has voted to officially recognise the Armenian genocide. This has created major strains with Turkey, but France has stood pretty firm on this.

I am generally favorable to Turkey's entry into the EU, but it should be on the EU's terms, and not on bilaterally negotiated more favorable terms, and it should certainly include a recognition of the genocide.

We'll see.
