Latin American Parliament–Parlatino

PANAMA CITY, Paname–The Latin American Parliament (Parlatino) approved on Friday July 31 a resolution recognizing the Armenian Genocide. The Panama-based body that was created in 1964 with the Declaration of Lima, and is composed by the National Congresses and Legislative Assemblies of all Iberoamerica.

This new recognition of the crime against humanity perpetrated by the Turkish state, adds to the resolutions adopted by Parliaments in South America this year, as was the case of the Chamber of Deputies of Chile, the Federal Senate of Brazil and the State Legislature of Rio de Janeiro.

“Among many other topics covered by Executive Board of the Latin American Parliament and the Caribbean Declaration, the recognition of the Armenian Genocide was supported almost unanimously (with one abstention),” wrote National Deputy of Montevideo Alfredo Asti a few minutes later. “Uruguay was a pioneer in the world in this recognition 50 years ago and today we strongly supported this position.”

The Latin American Parliament (Parlatino), is a regional, permanent organization composed by the countries of Latin America and the Caribbean. It is a consultative assembly similar to the early European Parliament. .
