“Once again, while Armenia was under attack, diverse voices from Uruguayan society honored that pacifist vocation and respectful of international law that has been the conduct of the Uruguayan State towards the world,” said the statement from the Armenian community.
“Our community is more than a hundred years old and has made memory one of its most precious traditions. It will never forget the gestures of solidarity of the Uruguayan people and their organizations towards our brothers in the Republic of Armenia and will continue to work tirelessly for the common good of our peoples ”.
