The Congress of the Michoacán State of Mexico, on May 7 adopted a statement recognizing and condemning the 1915 Armenian Genocide.

The document was authored by the ruling Morena party lawmaker Cristina Portillo Ayala.

After the adoption of the statement the congress observed a moment of silence in memory of the victims of the Armenian Genocide. The ceremony was attended by Armenia’s Honorary Consul to Michoacán Hakob Sahakyan.

This is the first instance where a legislative body in Mexico is adopting a statement recognizing and condemning the Armenian Genocide.
