Charles Aznavour becomes Commander of Belgium’s Order of the Crown

Charles Aznavour has become a Commander of the Belgian Order of the Crown, the highest distinction awarded by King Philip on the proposal of Foreign Minister Didier Reynders, reports.

The ceremony was held under special circumstances due to the emotion aroused by the attacks that bloodied Paris Friday. Minister Reynders praised the qualities of the artist.

Born in Paris to a father to Armenian origins, Charles Aznavour is campaigning for recognition of the Armenian genocide. Belgium recognized the Armenian genocide through parliamentary initiatives and, more recently, by the voice of Prime Minister Charles Michel in a speech in the House.
