British Armenian Group is the largest lobby organization in British Parliament

YEREVAN (YERKIR) – 114 British parliamentarians are for recognizing the Armenian Genocide by the United Kingdom, Co-Founder and honorary Secretary of the British Armenian Group Odette Bazil told a news conference in Yerevan on Tuesday. She said, in order to include the resolution in the agenda one third of signatures of the 665-member parliament were needed. For this purpose the British Armenian Group cooperates with other organizations, which protects rights of victims of other genocides, she said adding that it was difficult to deal with the pro-Armenian lobby in the United Kingdom since very influential Turkish and Azeri lobby organizations work there. Bazil also said that from the moment of establishing the group the organization had grown. When the group was established only six parliamentarians were included in it, and now their number has reached 106. This is the largest lobby group in the British Parliament, she noticed.
