No: 74, 29 April 2024, Regarding the Resolution by the French National Assembly on Assyrian/Chaldeans that Includes Accusations Without Legal or Historical Foundation Pertaining to the Ottoman Period

Republic Of Türkiye Ministry Of Foreign Affairs 29.04.2024

The resolution on Assyrians and Chaldeans adopted by the French National Assembly on 29 April 2024 is null and void.

Last year, the French Government announced that it did not support a similar resolution adopted by the French Senate. The fact that the same unfounded accusations have been put on the agenda of the National Assembly this time by members of the ruling party is an example of efforts to distort historical events for the sake of political interests.

Parliaments have no authority to interpret or pass a judgement on history.

This resolution also contravenes the 1948 UN Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide, which states that the crime of genocide can only be ruled by a competent court.
