MFA: Decision of the Czech Senate is a key message in preventing  genocides

ArmInfo. We welcome the adoption by the Senate of the Parliament of the Czech Republic of a resolution on the 75th anniversary of the end of World War II, which also condemns crimes against humanity committed during the two world wars,  including genocide committed against Armenians in the Ottoman Empire. 

This is stated in the commentary of the press secretary of the  Armenian Foreign Ministry, Anna Naghdalyan, regarding the resolution  adopted by the Czech Senate.  <The unanimous decision of the Czech  Senate is a significant contribution to the restoration of historical  justice and respect for the memory of the victims. This is also a key  message in the prevention of genocides and new crimes against  humanity>, the comment says.

Recall that the Czech Senate at a plenary meeting on May 20  unanimously adopted a resolution dedicated to the 75th anniversary of  the end of World War II and condemning crimes against humanity  committed during the two world wars, including the Armenian Genocide.  The initiator of the above resolution was the Vice President of the  Senate of the Czech Republic, Milan Stech.

It should be noted that on April 25, 2017, the Chamber of Deputies of  the Czech Parliament adopted a resolution on the recognition and  condemnation of the Armenian Genocide. Before the Czech legislature  recognized this crime against humanity, Czech President Milos Zeeman  repeatedly made statements condemning the Armenian Genocide in  Ottoman Turkey. According to him, the Armenian Genocide is one of the  worst atrocities of our time.
