French President Macron Reaffirms Support for Armenia in 2024 Military Address


French President Macron Reaffirms Support for Armenia in 2024 Military Address

French President Emmanuel Macron has highlighted the commitment to defend overseas territories and meet national obligations in the year 2024. Speaking to the country's Armed Forces, Macron refrained from providing specific details but highlighted the importance of regions such as the Balkans and Armenia.



During his address, Macron emphasized the centrality of the Balkans and Armenia in France's strategic focus. He alluded to significant developments and historic decisions, particularly regarding Armenia. Macron's mention of Armenia has sparked interest, prompting The Armenian Report to seek clarification from prominent French-Armenian diaspora figure Franck Papazian.


Papazian sheds light on the context of Macron's statement, explaining that the French President aimed to reaffirm support for Armenia - “Macron wanted to reaffirm his support for Armenia.”


According to Papazian, this message is directed at President Ilham Aliyev of Azerbaijan. The timing of Macron's address coincides with recent bold statements made by Aliyev, specifically targeting Armenians and threatening  Armenian sovereignty.


"It is no coincidence that Macron delivered this message in front of the armed forces," concludes Papazian, suggesting that Macron's words carry strategic significance amid heightened tensions and rhetoric from Azerbaijan.
