"It was waiting for it to be clear that he apologizes in the name of the French state. He did not do it. Even for forgiveness, he did not do it. That's what we notice."

They can therefore bring them to justice. It is something very important that we were waiting for. "

The speech of Emmanuel Macron was in any case been hailed by his counterpart Paul Kagame at a common press conference. "His words were more valuable than excuses. They were the truth," reacted Paul Kagame, evoking the "huge courage" of his "friend" Emmanuel Macron.
