Ara Vardanyan, executive director of the Hayastan All-Armenian Fund, issued a congratulatory address to all of the fund’s affiliates and Armenians worldwide, as epitomized by the French affiliate and French-Armenian community, in connection with the passage of the French-Senate bill criminalizing the denial of genocides.

“The bill’s passage is a turning point of singular importance in the histories of France and Armenia alike,” Vardanyan stated in his address. “It once again demonstrates that for the past several decades the global Armenian community has had an invaluable role in not only the socio-economic development of Armenia and Artsakh, but the process of educating the international public with regard to the tragedies that have befallen the Armenian nation and securing official recognition of their historicity.”
