Today, Armenians in the world pay tribute to the memory of the  victims of Armenian Genocide 

ArmInfo.Today on April 24, Armenians of the world pay tribute to the memory of the victims of the Genocide in the Ottoman Empire. Starting from very early morning  thousands of people walk up to the "Tsitsernakaberd" memorial to the  victims of Genocide to commemorate the victims of the crimes against  humanity that occurred 104 years ago in the Ottoman Empire.

 In addition to the residents of Armenia and the Diaspora Armenians, as  well as the country's authorities, foreign diplomats accredited in  the country also visit the memorial.

It should be noted that the Armenian Genocide is recognized and  condemned by 31 countries of the world, 49 out of 50 US states,  influential international organizations - the European Parliament,  the Council of Europe, the UN subcommittee on the prevention of  discrimination and protection of minorities, the World Council of  Churches. Three European countries criminalized the denial of the  Genocide - Cyprus, Slovakia, Switzerland.

Pope Francis called the massacre of Armenian Christians in the  Ottoman Empire "the first genocide of the twentieth century".

Meanwhile, Turkey still categorically refuses to recognize the  Armenian Genocide.  It should be noted that as a result of the  planned policy of the government of the Young Turks in the Ottoman  Empire, in the beginning of the 20th century, the Armenian Genocide  and mass forced deportation of the Armenian population were carried  out. 1.5 million Armenians became victims of the genocidal policy of  the Young Turks, hundreds of thousands were forcibly deported and  sought refuge in foreign countries.
