ArmInfo. Member of the ALDE Party, Chairman of the Union of Armenians of Romania Varujan Voskanyan during the plenary session of the Chamber of Deputies of Romania called on lawmakers to adopt a political statement recognizing the Armenian Genocide.
According to the Romanian agency Agerpres, this statement was made during the discussions on the bill on the establishment of the National Museum for the Study of the History of Jews and the Holocaust in Romania. ''We are unanimous in our condemnation of the Holocaust. I ask you to include the recognition of the Armenian Genocide on the agenda and adopt the political statement of the parliamentary parties. This is a topic that so far the Romanian parties have avoided taking into account. There are dozens of parliaments around the world, the European Parliament and all European parliaments that have made such declarations of recognition of the Armenian Genocide'', said the chairman of the Union of Armenians of Romania. He stated that not a single tragedy of this scale ''has a native language'' .
