Turkey says downgrading diplomatic representation in France a possibility if it outlaws denial of Armenian genocide

Turkey may step up action against France if the French Senate votes this month to outlaw denial of the Armenian genocide, a Turkish diplomatic source said Thursday.

"There may be a downgrading of the Turkish diplomatic representation in Paris. It is probable," if the upper house of parliament approves the bill criminalising denial of the disputed 1915 genocide, the source told AFP.
