European Armenian Federation Hails Canada

BRUSSELS–The European Armenian Federation applauded Canada’s passage of Armenian Genocide legislation on Wednesday–congratulating those organizations and individuals who doggedly pursued official recognition–as well as parliament members who backed the motion–ensuring its passage by a vote of 153 to 58.

"In restoring truth–Canada also restores justice and paves the only possible way to a frank and fair reconciliation. That’s why we ask the European Union to demand without delay Turkey to acknowledge and to give reparation for the Armenian Genocide before examining its application for membership," said the director of the European Armenian Federation Laurent Leylekian.
