French Senators join Armenians to protest Ilham Aliyev’s visit to Paris

On September 18, more 900 French Armenians expressed their dissatisfaction about the visit of Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev inParis, only a few days after the pardon granted to the murderer of Gurgen Markarian, Ramil Safarov.

In front of Azerbaijan embassy, several members of French parliament and senators, among which François Rochebloine, René Rouquet, François Pupponi, Philippe Kaltenbach and Valérie Boyer (author of the bill condemning of the Armenian genocide denial), declared that Safarov affair is “a crime of Azerbaijan against Armenia,” ” a violation of international justice.”

The leaders of the Armenian organizations of France, Ara Toranian, Mourad Papazian (CCAF), Harout Mardirossian (CDCA), Hratch Varjabedian (BFCA) and Yeriche Gorizian (Nor Seround), condemned vigorously the presence of the “dictator Aliyev” on  French ground and demanded the right to self-determination for Nagorno-Karabakh.

Among slogans, the crowd shouted “Aliev fascist, outsideFrance!”, “Safarov in prison!” and “Karabakh belongs to us not Baku.”
