Rwanda: France ready to cooperate in genocide investigation

The new French ambassador to Rwanda said his country is ready to cooperate with Rwanda's investigation of France's role in the genocide.
"I have stated it clearly in different meetings with government officials that France is ready to cooperate in good spirit and goodwill with the [Rwandan] commission," Dominique Decherf, the French ambassador, told IRIN in the capital, Kigali.

[...] France has always denied involvement in the killings and a French parliamentary commission in 1998 cleared France of responsibility for the genocide while also admitting that "strategic errors" had been made. (source)
