YEREVAN, AUGUST 2, ARMENPRESS. United States Congressman Frank Pallone called out the President of the United Nations General Assembly Abdulla Shahid for “capitulating to pressure from Turkey” and deleting his tweet on his visit to the Armenian Genocide Memorial in Yerevan.

“33 countries, including the United States, have formally recognized the Armenian genocide. The UN should not be complicit in Turkey's rejection of history. UNPGA Abdulla Shahid was wrong for deleting his tweet and capitulating to pressure from Turkey,” Pallone tweeted.

While on a visit to Armenia in late-July 2022, UNGA President Abdullah Shahid visited the Tsitsernakaberd Armenian Genocide Memorial in Yerevan. He shared a tweet from his visit, but deleted it soon afterwards.

“I should like to see any power of the world destroy this race, this small tribe of unimportant people, whose wars have all been fought and lost, whose structures have crumbled, literature is unread, music is unheard, and prayers are no more answered. Go ahead, destroy Armenia . See if you can do it. Send them into the desert without bread or water. Burn their homes and churches. Then see if they will not laugh, sing and pray again. For when two of them meet anywhere in the world, see if they will not create a New Armenia.” - WS
