On the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide Senator of the Czech Republic Jaromír Štětina will introduce a bill on recognition of the Armenian Genocide to the Czech Senate.
“To my opinion it’s of a certain importance to adopt a realistic document condemning the Armenian Genocide committed in the Ottoman Empire in 1915,” Senator Štětina said in an exclusive interview with Armenpress.
The Senator sees two possible options for the recognition of the Armenian Genocide in the Czech Republic. The first is the Slavonic version – to adopt a declaration on the recognition of the Armenian Genocide, and the second option is to pass a relevant bill.
Among other things the Czech Senator stated: “Taking into consideration that the 100th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide is approaching, I am going to introduce a declaration on recognition of the Armenian Genocide to the Czech Senate Committee on Foreign Relations and Defense issues. In case of approval we shall try to pass the declaration in the Senate.”
