San Paulo Adopts Armenian Genocide Resolution

YEREVAN (Yerkir)–During its most recent session–the city parliament of San Paulo–Brazil–adopted a resolution recognizing the Armenian genocide–reported Armenia’s Foreign Ministry on Friday.

The resolution–which notes that over 1.5 million Armenia’s were subjected to a genocide perpetrated by the Turkish government in 1915–and that such crimes go against the spirit of international coexistence–expresses solidarity with the Armenian nation and calls on Brazil’s president to take the necessary steps to have the Armenian genocide recognized on the federal level.

The resolution was adopted unanimously. A copy of the resolution was handed to the Armenian consul general in San Paulo on October 20.
