EAFJD: INTERNATIONAL PROCESS OF RECOGNITION TO CONTINUE UNTIL TURKEY RECOGNIZES THE ARMENIAN GENOCIDE
On the occasion of the 95th anniversary of the Armenian genocide,
the European Armenian Federation for Justice and Democracy joins all
the democratic forces and the European Armenian communities to pay
homage to the 1,500,000 victims of the 20th Century first genocide
perpetrated by the Ottoman Turkish government.
"Although it has been attested by a huge majority of historians and
recognized by tens of Parliaments and international institutions
in the world, this genocide still remains unpunished and denied by
successive Turkish governments," EAFJD said in a statement.
The European Armenian Federation states that, whatever the political
and economic threats Turkey makes on the countries which recognize
this genocide, the international process of recognition will continue
until the recognition by the Turkish State itself.
"Aware of the moral and material prejudices generated by the genocide,
the European Armenian Federation affirms that as for any Crime against
Humanity, the process of reconciliation between the Armenian people
and Turkey will have to pass by the re-establishment of the truth,
the recognition and the morals and material reparation," the statement
