YEREVAN (Mediamax)—Armenian National Assembly and Israeli Knesset are going to take steps toward boosting inter-parliamentary ties.

Upon the official invitation of the Israeli Knesset, the delegation headed by Chairman of Standing Committee on Foreign Relations of Armenian National Assembly Artak Zakaryan visited Jerusalem and Tel Aviv.

These were the first Israel-Armenia interparliamentary contacts.

On behalf of the Armenian National Assembly, Artak Zakaryan has expressed the content to the Israeli Knesset for the parliamentary delegation’s high-level participation in the Armenian Genocide Centennial events this April.

The sides have also attached importance to the need for activating the Friendship Group; the idea of establishment of Armenian-Israeli forum under the Group has been discussed. The forum will engage individuals and organizations interested in developing the relations between the two states.

The Armenian delegation has stressed that the Armenian Members of Parliament expect the Knesset to express its official position on acknowledgement and condemnation of the Armenian Genocide in future, and as peoples surviving genocides, Armenian and Jewish peoples together with the international community will continue their struggle against prevention of crimes against humanity.

The delegation also held meetings at Armenian Patriarchate in Jerusalem.

    And exactly when are they going to recognize the genocide? Isn’t 100 years after the fact not sufficient enough? Bogus promises will only lead the sheep to more slaughter.

    Funny how only the Armenian MPs are expecting recognition. No word on any expression from the other side. As George W. so eloquently expressed once….”Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me.”……or something like that. I think!

    Isreal will be the last country to recognize the Genocide, Turkey will recognize it before Israel
