development of Armenia, Head of ARFD faction Levon Lazarian said at
the Armenian parliament today.
He said the recent events in the Turkish parliament directly
endangered the national security of Armenia. “Turkey keeps speaking
with Armenia in the language of force, having blocked the country’s
borders and blackmailing it by Karabakh issue,” he said. He said the
policy of Turkey with respect to the problem of genocide was aimed not
only against the past of the Armenian people, but also against its
present. At the same time, he pointed out that the whole Armenian
people was full of decisiveness to restore justice and protect its
rights. Lazarian expressed confidence that the year 2005 would become
crucial for the international recognition of the Armenian Genocide and
achievement of one of the tasks set by Hay Dat.
