France Officially Bans Turkish Ultra-Nationalist “Grey Wolves” Group.

Today, the Turkish ultra-nationalist “Grey Wolves” group was officially banned in France, per Arman Tatoyan, Human Rights Defender, Ombudsman of Armenia.

I was informed about this important decision from the Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of France to Armenia H.E. Jonathan Lacôte.

During the meeting, I presented evidence about the atrocities and cruel treatment of the Azerbaijani armed forces against civilians, including the use of prohibited cluster and weapons containing chemical elements against civilians, the use of firearms and the massive destruction of civilian infrastructure.

I expressed my condolences to the French people on the terrorist attack on the Notre Dame Cathedral in Nice and expressed my concern to the Ambassador in connection with the recent actions in France based on hatred against ethnic Armenians, emphasizing the protection of the security and rights of Armenians.

The French Ambassador to Armenia J. Lacôte strongly condemned the cases of vandalism and attacks against French citizens of Armenian origin and Armenian citizens and informed the Defender that the French Council of Ministers had decided to ban the Turkish nationalist “Grey Wolves” (“Bozkurt”) organization in France, because of the latter’s carrying out of ultra-nationalist activities, and, during the past week, of attacking and inciting hatred against Armenians.

It is a known fact that during the April 2016 War, as well as now, the torture, atrocities and cruel treatment are carried out by the members of the Turkish nationalist “Grey Wolves” organization in the Azerbaijani Armed Forces, or are carried out by using their methods.

I expressed my sincere gratitude to the Ambassador for this decision of utmost importance.
