Armenian Parliament considers statement condemning genocide of Greeks and Assyrians





A draft statement condemning the “Genocide Committed in the Ottoman Empire against Greeks and Assyrians in 1915-1923” was considered at the Armenian National Assembly today.

Based on international documents and different UN Conventions, the authors offer to condemn the genocides against the Christian nations in the Ottoman Empire.

“This will be our contribution to the international struggle against genocides,” Vice-Speaker of the Armenian National Assembly Edward Sharmazanov said.

According to him, genocide scholars view the genocides against Armenians, Greeks and Assyrians in the Ottoman Empire as a single policy and thousands of facts come to prove this.
