ArmInfo. RA President Serzh Sargsyan addressed to the people in view
of 1915 Armenian Genocide victims Remembrance Day marked on April
24. RA president’s address, received by ArmInfo from the presidential
press-service, notes that considerable part of the Armenian people was
exterminated and displaced as a result of the genocide scheduled and
executed in Ottoman Turkey. The problem of international recognition
and condemnation of the Armenian Genocide is an inseparable part of
Armenia’s foreign policy. For the sake of all the Armenians, Armenia
has to keep on making efforts to recover the historical justice. Denial
of the Genocide fact has no future, especially today, when many
countries of the world joined their voice to the voice of the truth.

Recognition and condemnation of the Genocide is a great national
issue for the Armenian people. The crime against the mankind is of
universal nature, therefore, it should have a universal resonance. "Our
aspirations have nothing common with revenge and enmity. Keeping in
mind the innocent victims of the Genocide, we are ready to establish
normal relations with Turkey even tomorrow, without preconditions",
S.Sargsyan’s message reads. It also reads that numerous new facts
and documents about the Genocide expect to be published, however,
one thing is apparent – such crime could be executed only under
conditions of absence of the Armenian statehood. "Today, on April 24,
we have to realize the exclusive significance of the Armenian statehood
with special sharpness. For the sake of all the Armenians, the state
should prosper and strengthen, that is a guarantee of security of
the Armenian people", RA prime minister’s message reads.
