 April 7. Emmanuel Macron's visit to Rwanda

On April 7, Rwanda commemorates the 1994 genocide of the Tutsis, which left at least 800,000 Tutsis and moderate Hutus dead. A few weeks ago, Emmanuel Macron announced to Jeune Afrique his intention to visit Kigali in 2021.

By going to Rwanda, Emmanuel Macron also seems to want to shed light on the issue of the memory of the Rwandan genocide and the question, never acknowledged by Paris, of France's responsibility in this genocide. Emmanuel Macron has opened the French archives (1990-1994) to researchers. This Rwanda Commission is also expected to deliver its conclusions in early April.

June 18. Iran: Hassan Rohani's succession in question

With six months to go before the presidential election in Iran, the conservatives are the big favorites, with the Guardian Council, which validates candidacies, even risking preventing any reformist from running. The hardening of U.S. rhetoric toward Iran during Donald Trump's tenure will have an impact on the outcome of the vote.

Increased sanctions have discredited the "moderate" policies of the current president, Hassan Rohani, and undermined his promises of reform in 2013. The reformist camp still hopes to capitalize on Joe Biden coming to power and a possible revival of the nuclear deal, buried by his wind-up. In 2019, protests against the high cost of living were violently repressed.

September 11: 20 years after the attack on the World Trade Center
