AUSTRIAN PARLIAMENT CONDEMNS ARMENIAN GENOCIDE

Austrian parliament adopted a resolution on April 21 condemning the Armenian Genocide.

The joint statement adopted by 6 political parties notes that the mass killings of Armenians in the Ottoman Empire 100 years ago constituted genocide, Bedo Demirdjian, Communications and PR Officer at European Armenian Federation for Justice and Democracy (EAFJD) told Mediamax.

“The resolution also points out Austria’s moral responsibility to recognize the Armenian Genocide as Austro-Hungarian and German Empires were allies of the Ottoman Turkey during the WWI”, Demirdjian said.

He added that the Austrian MPs will honor the memory of the Armenian Genocide victims with a moment of silence tomorrow [April 22].

According to Demirdjian, the Austrian official delegation to Yerevan will be represented by Austria’s Ambassador to Armenia on April 24.
