TBILISI (Combined Sources)-Georgia’s Armenian minority has called on
President Mikheil Saakashvili and the Georgian Parliament to officially
recognize the Armenian Genocide.

The request, which came in a letter co-signed by the Armenian
Community of Georgia, The Armenian Cooperation Centre of Georgia
and the Association of Armenian Students of Georgia, asks that
a bill recognizing the Genocide be drafted. It was sent Monday to
Saakashvili, the chairpersons of Georgia’s parliament and the leaders
of its parliamentary fractions. Similar letters were also written to
ethnic Armenian members of parliament.

The letter also asks that the members of parliament issue a statement
on the Armenian Genocide during the parliamentary session before
April 24, and to request that the parliament commemorate the Genocide.
