GENOCIDE RECOGNITION RESOLUTION TO BE DISCUSSED AT BUNDESTAG: TESSA HOFFMAN HAS NO GREAT EXPECTATIONS

YEREVAN, APRIL 3, ARMENPRESS: At the forthcoming session of the
Germany’s Bundestag on April 24 the Left will put to discussion a
resolution, demanding to recognize the events, committed against the
Armenians, as genocide. Nevertheless, there is a small probability of
adoption of such a resolution at the Parliament of Germany. Armenpress
was told about it by the famous German Genocide Studies expert Tessa
She stated that on the same day the ruling Christian Democratic Party
will put to discussion another resolution, which, however, seems to
repeat the 2005 decision of the Bundestag.
“The text of the abovementioned draft has not been yet published,
though its title again holds the key words “deportation and massacre”.
That is, there is no probability that what had happened would be
recognized a genocide. The resolution is just the repetition of what we
have had for already ten years. As the best version of the resolution
comment, you may accept it as a “concealed recognition”, though, in
fact, it does not justify the expectations of the Armenian community,
the genocide studies experts and the human rights defenders”,- said
Tessa Hoffman, Armenpress reports.
