YEREVAN, SEPTEMBER 19, ARMENPRESS: The society of Egypt wants that
the government of the country recognizes and condemns the Armenian
Genocide. This was reported to Armenpress by the representative of
Egypt in the Commission for Armenian Affairs Awareness Organizations,
the lobbyist Armen Mazlumyan. “The people of Egypt are the friends
of the Armenian nation. They know the history of the Armenians and
know that what had happened is a genocide, as Egypt is one of the
countries, which open-armed accepted the Armenians, who survived from
the Genocide”, – said Armen Mazlumyan.

The representative of Egypt in the Commission for Armenian Affairs
Awareness Organizations appealed to the Armenians from all over
the world to be more active ahead of the centennial of the Armenian

Earlier Armenpress reported that Egypt could become the first
Muslim country to recognize the Armenian Genocide of 1915 organized
by the Ottoman Empire. This was published by the Italian website
Vatican Insider, touching upon the unprecedented step of the lawyer
Muhammad Saad Khairallah, who for the first time in the history has
submitted an accusatory claim against Turkey on the organization of
the Armenian Genocide. The Egyptian Court will consider the case on
November 5. Muhammad Saad Khairallah stated about it for the first
time during the talk-show held on September 4. He expressed his hope
that his claim will make Egypt recognize the Armenian Genocide thus
serving an example for the other Arab countries.

During the talk-show a proposal was sound to erect a monument
commemorating the innocent victims of the Armenian Genocide in Cairo,
the capital of Egypt.
