The nine-member commission will have access to presidential, diplomatic, military and intelligence v2_archives, the French presidency said on Friday, after Macron met members of an association supporting survivors of the genocide.

“The goal is to deliver a report which will be published in two years time ... and will be accessible to all. It will scientifically evaluate, on the basis of v2_archives, the role that France played in Rwanda from 1990 to 1994,” the presidency said.
