/PanARMENIAN.Net/ Heritage party condemns the statement of the Turkish
Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan on possible expulsion of allegedly
100 thousand illegal Armenian migrants from Turkey.
The party is preparing a document to address it to all member countries
of the Council of Europe, as the Turkish Prime Minister’s statement is
a violation of Council of Europe’s norms, Heritage parliamentary group
member Zaruhi Postanjyan told a briefing at the National Assembly of
Armenia on March 19.
She also described the recent statement by the Assistant Secretary of
State Philip Gordon that the U.S. government cannot put pressure on
Congress in the matter of adoption of Resolution 252 on the Armenian
Genocide as a political act with unclear consequences. "Recognition
of the Armenian Genocide by Washington is necessary for the U.S. first
of all," she said.
