French President Emanuel Macron has dismissed the report which suggests that the country would issue an official apology to Algeria for the war crimes committed in the former French colony by the then Colonial France.
During the eight-year-old war – which actually ended in the expel of the colonial master form the colony territory, the Colonial France committed several human rights violations in Algeria.
The decision has received serious criticism. Several people have expressed their criticism loudly.
Many have used the social media platforms to express their disagreement.
Algeria is a former colony of France.
Mr. Macron has however agreed to take initiative to improve the relation between France and Algeria.
At present, France shares a cordial relation with Algeria. In the coming days, the relation between Algeria and France is expected to be improved.
France is a very powerful country in the continent of Europe. Unfortunately, the depressing colonial part of France is still haunting the country.
It is unfortunate that the French President has not showed the courage to express his country’s apology.
Had the French President extended the apology, he could have improved his global image and acceptance immensely.
