A time will come for Turkish nation to recognize the 1915 Armenian
Genocide perpetrated by the Ottoman Empire, Polish Ambassador to RA
Zdzislaw Raczynski said.
As he stated at Eurasia University-initiated "From Der Zor to Katyn"
event in Yerevan: "Realization and reconciliation with its own history
is a lengthy process, which, still, can’t be expedited. By recognizing
the Armenian Genocide, Turkey will come to terms with its past."
"1915 atrocities signaled the era of horrible tragedies like Holocaust
and Katyn massacre," Ambassador Raczynski said.
Polish parliament recognized the Armenian Genocide in June 2005.
