  • A Erevan, Emmanuel Macron appelle à

" J'apprends les mots les plus utiles: comment ça va?"

L'enjeu du XVIe Sommet de la Francophonie est beaucoup plus grand et complexe que le seul aspect de la gestion interne de l'organisation.

Mais il aurait aimé " en connaître plus pour dire que nous sommes contents de les accueillir, parler de notre histoire, d'Erevan...

Créée en 1970, l'OIF réunit 84 États et gouvernements "ayant le français en partage" dont 54 membres permanents et 30 membres associés ou pays observateurs, sans droit de vote.

Le soir, les époux Macron assisteront au concert hommage à l'auteur de La Bohème, qui sera célébré par des artistes arméniens et internationaux, comme Zaz, Angélique Kidjo, Serge Lama et le pianiste du chanteur, Erik Berchot.

À l'entrée du complexe Karen Demirdjian, où se tient le sommet de la Francophonie, la musique de Charles Aznavour, un fils de l'Arménie résonnait, jeudi.

Check out new footage from upcoming Joker movie
Filming on Joaquin Phoenix and Todd Phillips' Joker has gotten off to an unpleasant start, to say the least. The upcoming movie co-stars Robert De Niro , Marc Maron , Brett Cullen and " Deadpool 2" star Zazie Beetz .

Quatre anciens ministres des affaires étrangères français ont même publié une tribune pour dénoncer le choix de la France de soutenir la candidate rwandaise, notamment parce qu'il entraînait "un bras de fer inutile" avec Justin Trudeau, soutien de la canadienne Michaëlle Jean actuelle directrice de l'organisation et candidate à sa réélection.

Des dirigeants africains ressentiraient cependant un certain malaise d'avoir en quelque sorte été placés devant le fait accompli, d'après une source bien au fait de la campagne à la direction.

Dans une lettre ouverte au président français, le président de Debout la France et député de l'Essone Nicolas Dupont-Aignan, avec les sénateurs Jean-Louis Masson, Christine Herzog (Moselle) et Claudine Kauffmann (ex FN, Var) jugent "incompréhensible et injustifiable" ce soutien de Paris à Louise Mushikiwabo. Cette logique a eu raison des critiques qu'a suscitées la candidature Mushikiwabo, en particulier sur son rapport assez lointain avec la francophonie. Le pays a remplacé le français par l'anglais en tant que langue obligatoire à l'école et a rejoint le Commonwealth, pendant anglophone de l'OIF. " L'épicentre de la langue française est sans doute dans le bassin du fleuve Congo ", a ainsi répété le président français, Emmanuel Macron.

Ses chances sont toutefois minces, depuis que le Canada et le Québec lui ont retiré leur appui, cette semaine, face au consensus qui se forme autour de la candidature de la Rwandaise Louise Mushikiwabo.

Interrogée par l'AFP, Mme Mushikiwabo a récemment affirmé que "la majorité des Rwandais sont contents du système démocratique".

Qu'à cela ne tienne, la Canada des Casques bleus, le Canada qui s'insurge courageusement contre les violations des droits de la personne en Arabie Saoudite, le Canada qui lève le tabou et prend la défense des minorités LGBTQ, le Canada qui brandit les droits et les libertés sans ambages, ne doit pas sacrifier ou remettre en question les valeurs fondamentales prônées par l'OIF et qui sont chères aux yeux des Canadiens.
