ArmInfo. Armenia continues to work actively towards the prevention of genocides. Armenian Foreign Minister Zohrab Mnatsakanyan stated this on April 24, speaking online within the framework of the <INSTALIVE> project of the Children of Armenia charity foundation.
The Minister noted that the prevention of genocides for 22 years is one of the most important goals of Armenia. As was noted, in this direction the republic is doing everything possible to develop appropriate tools, including through active cooperation with international partners and organizations. According to Mnatsakanyan, the threat of genocide exists today, and this also applies to vulnerable groups that may face persecution and violence. In this regard, the obligation of the international community to join efforts and do everything possible to early detection and prevention of such crimes was pointed out. In this regard, it was noted that it was impunity that could lead to the risk of genocide.
Mnatsakanyan emphasized the fact that Armenia not only managed to survive the Genocide, but also continued to stand firmly on its feet, demanding justice. The fact that the call to hold accountable does not lose its relevance after 105 years, proves, according to him, that the Genocide caused a deep wound to the Armenian people, the pain of which new generations feel. <Prevention of genocide is the most important task for every nation. We, as a people who survived the Genocide, should take all steps at international venues to prevent the recurrence of such crimes>, the minister emphasized.
