This is a great loss for the two friendly countries and nations.
I express my deep condolences to and solidarity with the family, relatives and colleagues of Patrick Devedjian, the friends and supporters who shared his ideas and are sharing the sorrow for the loss and praying for the soul of Patrick Devedjian to rest in peace.
Patrick was unconditionally dedicated to his work, sincerely believed that he would succeed and wouldn’t spare efforts, including for recognition of the Armenian Genocide in France and defense of the Armenian Cause.
He would be glad to see his work completed successfully by his supporters and his ideas implemented which will, unquestionably, be the best respect towards the memory of the renowned figure,” Serzh Sargsyan’s telegram of condolence reads.
