MFA: Syrian parliament`s resolution on the Armenian Genocide is a  significant contribution to the restoration of historical justice

ArmInfo.The resolution adopted by the Syrian People's Council on the recognition and  condemnation of the Armenian Genocide in the Ottoman Empire is a significant contribution to the restoration of historical justice. This is stated in the statement of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Armenia.

<The genocide unleashed by the Young Turks government, a significant  part of which was committed on the territory of Syria, which was  under the rule of the Ottoman Empire at that time, is part of the  common historical memory of the Armenian and Syrian peoples. The  Syrian people, who witnessed the genocide of the Armenian people,  were one of the first to lend a helping hand to the victims of the  genocide. Thousands of genocide survivors regained their homeland in  Syria, and having formed one of the most prosperous Armenian  communities, they contributed to the development of Syria.

This resolution is a vivid proof of centuries-old friendship and  mutual sympathy between the Armenian and Syrian peoples. It is a  significant contribution to the restoration of historical justice and  the prevention of genocides. Today, when the people of Syria are  going through difficult trials, we express our solidarity and support  in overcoming the existing challenges>, the republic's Foreign  Ministry notes.  The Assembly of Armenians of Europe (AAE) also made  a statement regarding the resolution of the Syrian parliament. <After  Lebanon, Syria became the second state in the Arab world to recognize  and condemn the Armenian Genocide at the parliament level. The moment  is not far off when they will consistently recognize and condemn the  Genocide and other states of the Arab world, because, first of all,  they see and feel the Turkish aggressive, genocidal policy towards  all those countries and peoples that at one time suffered under the  yoke of cruel The Ottoman Empire, and today are exposed to the threat  of Turkey's expansion policies.

Turkey, with its policy of denial, not only moves away from the  duties of a country that respects and fulfills the universal human  values, but also becomes one of the few states that protect and carry  out crimes and genocides in the world. The Turkish army has long  dreamed of destroying the Syrian republic and occupying most of its  territory. Before it's too late, it is necessary to stop this  process>, AAE emphasizes.  It should be noted that on February 13,  the Syrian parliament unanimously adopted a resolution on the  recognition and condemnation of the Armenian Genocide in the Ottoman  Empire. Thus, the Syrian parliament joined the more than 30  parliaments of the world that adopted resolutions on the recognition  and condemnation of the Armenian Genocide.

The fact of the genocide of the Armenian people in the Ottoman  Empire, whose victims in 1915 were up to 1.5 million ethnic  Armenians, is recognized by many states. Uruguay was the first to do  it in 1965, followed by France, Italy, the Netherlands, Belgium,  Poland, Russia, Lithuania, Slovakia, Sweden, Switzerland, Greece,  Cyprus, Lebanon, Canada, Venezuela, Argentina, Brazil, Chile, the  Vatican, Bolivia , Czech Republic, Austria, Luxembourg. The European  Parliament and the World Council of Churches also recognized the  Armenian Genocide.
