European Armenians welcome the statement of EP President

“By making Turkey’s Membership of the European Union contingent on Turkey’s acknowledgment of the genocide you have not only displayed a great respect for the universal European values, but also with your formal declaration have confirmed the overall superiority and supremacy of our continental humanitarian constructs of Democracy and Freedom intended ultimately to protect Human Rights, devastated daily in the modern but backward looking State of Turkey, longing for Ottoman domination and slavery of nations,” President of the Assembly of the Armenians of Europe Garo Hakopian wrote in a letter addressed to Martin Schultz, President of the European Parliament.

The President of the European Parliament Martin Shultz declared earlier that Turkey’s integration into Europe is preconditioned by the recognition of the Armenian Genocide, reiterating the body’s 1987 decision.

“Turkey should recognize the Armenian Genocide and it would be considered as a precondition to enter the European Union,” said Shultz.

“We expect that the pan-European socio-political structures, albeit late, but hopefully soon now, assume their historical responsibilities against the horrendous holocaust perpetrated upon our nation by the Ottoman State of Turkey, robbing it of its historical territories, to finally see justice done by their return according to The Treaty of Sèvres (10 August 1920,” President of the Assembly of the Armenians of Europe said.
