Armenian genocide and the deniers

The French parliament has voted to support a law that criminalizes denying the Armenian genocide happened. The European Commission attacked this saying open dialogue is needed about Armenia in Turkey, a potential EU member.

Yet Turkey has already made it illegal to discuss the genocide. In Germany, saying another genocide, the Holocaust, didn’t occur is also a crime. So, such laws are already on the books. So why the bizarre insistence there must be debate about something which obviously happened? especially when the perpetrator nation already specifically forbids such debate. Either both nations can have such a law (even if their intent is opposite) or neither can, but not just one and not the other.
