WASHINGTON, MAY 29, NOYAN TAPAN – ARMENIANS TODAY. The army of
supporters of resolution 106 concerning the Armenian Genocide
gradually widens at the U.S. Congress. Democrat from New York Carolyn
Maloney and republican from Florida Gus Bilirakis, the Co-Chairmen
of the Congressional Caucus on Hellenic Issues, having 127 members,
emphasized this week in the letter addressed to their colleagues
of the U.S. House of Representatives, that it is the time that the
American Government recognizes the Armenian Genocide. "It is the time
that the U.S. Government finally recognizes the indescribable crime
committed by the Turkish Government towards the Armenian people during
the years of the World War I and qualifies them as a "genocide." The
U.S. Government must everywhere protect the human rights, pursuing its
promises to protect the mankind from similar ferocities and recognize
the historic fact of the Armenian Genocide," is said in the letter.

As Armenian National Committee of America states, the Congressional
Caucus on Hellenic Issues closely cooperates with the Congress Armenian
Caucus and has been a supporter of resolution 106 concerning the
Armenian Genocide from the beginning. Both Congressional Caucus on
Hellenic Issues and whole Greek community of America recognized the
crimes committed by Turks agains their co-religious Christian Armenian,
calling them a "genocide."
