ArmInfo. The Armenian National Committee of America expressed gratitude to the US senators for the promotion of resolution No. 150 in the US Senate on the recognition of the Armenian Genocide.
Thus, according to an ANCA report in ArmInfo, the chairman of the Armenian National Committee of America, Raffi Hambaryan, expressed gratitude to US senators Robert Menendez and Ted Cruz for promoting resolution No. 150 and encouraging their Senate colleagues to unanimously adopt this document.
"ANCA is proud to support Senators Menendez and Cruise, who are increasing their pressure on colleagues to eliminate the Ankara's veto on recognizing the Armenian Genocide in the US Senate," Hambaryan noted, while pointing out that most members of the Senate would vote for this resolution.
According to him, only a small group of senators is inclined to speak out against her, thereby continuing to follow Erdogan's oath. At the same time, ANCA is convinced that these senators should not prevent the will of the Senate from being reflected in a bipartisan resolution that directly speaks of the US commitment to the prevention of genocides, respect for human rights and religious freedom. At the same time, ANCA emphasized that they would continue to promote Resolution No. 150 in the Senate and ensure its adoption, thereby putting an end to the White House's complicity in Turkey's denial of the Armenian Genocide. Recall that on October 29, the US House of Representatives adopted resolution No. 296 on the recognition of the Armenian Genocide. The document was added to the Congress agenda in April. 405 members of the House of Representatives spoke in support of the draft resolution, against - 11. Turkey announced that it ignores and considers inadmissible the biased position of the US House of Representatives on the events of 1915.
In addition, Resolution No. 150 on recognition of the Armenian Genocide, initiated by Senator Bob Menendez and which was twice blocked, was introduced to the US Senate. Significantly, Senator Lindsay Graham admitted that he vetoed the resolution at the request of the White House representative. We also note that Menendez stated that he would continue efforts to promote this document.
