ArmInfo. "I congratulate the Armenian people on the historical triumph of truth," said Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan on December 13, referring to the adoption by  the US Senate of a resolution recognizing the Armenian Genocide.

The Head of Government on behalf of the Armenian people and the  entire world of Armenians expressed deep appreciation to the Senate  for the recognition of the Armenian Genocide. He recalled that on  October 29, the House of Representatives of the Congress adopted a  majority vote on the recognition of the Armenian Genocide. He  expressed his gratitude also to the Armenians of the United States  and all those organizations that have contributed to the adoption of  such an important and historic decision. "This opens a new page in  the process of international recognition of the Armenian Genocide,"  he said.

As the head of the Armenian cabinet pointed out, the international  recognition of the Armenian Genocide is important for the Armenian  people not only from the point of view of ascertaining the historical  truth, but also an important element of the global process to prevent  genocides. Pashinyan recalled that it was on the proposal of Armenia  that the UN decided to proclaim December 9 as the International Day  of Remembrance for the Victims of the Crime of Genocide, honoring  their dignity and preventing this crime.  According to the prime  minister, it is important to fix that recognition of the Armenian  Genocide also carries a security component for Armenians. "It's not  the 1915 Genocide, but the policy of Turkey's denial that allows us  to fix that Turkey's policy remains a threat to Armenia and the  Armenian people. For almost 30 years, Turkey continues to block the  border of Armenia, and this is the next step of this policy. I think  the decision of the US Senate and parliaments of other states note  the destructiveness and aggressiveness of Turkish politics in the  region, "said Nikol Pashinyan.

In this context, he noted the aggressive policy of Turkey against  Syria, Iraq, Cyprus, Greece. "Turkey continues the blockade of  Armenia, which demonstrates its role in the region. In this regard,  the international community should express a clear position in  connection with the actions of Turkey and motivate it to reconsider  its role in our region," the prime minister said.

According to Pashinyan, like previous governments, the current  Cabinet declares that it is ready for relations with Turkey without  preconditions. "Recognition of the Genocide is not a matter of our  agenda with Turkey. Recognition of the Genocide is necessary first of  all for Turkey so that it can reconsider its role in the region,"  said Nikol Pashinyan.
