Debating genocide

Posted on Thursday 1st March 2012

Dr Pierre Purseigle took part it a debate on the Armenian genocide and French politics on Al Jazeera

"As far as historians are concerned, the genocide of Armenians is an indisputable fact .... The real question is what is the politicians business in this affair? And I think it is very clear to most of us that what we are witnessing here is a political wrangle over an historical event exploited for political reasons by all sides."
