British House of Commons Hosts Meeting on Armenia

YEREVAN (Armenpress)–Armenian ambassador to Great Britain Vahe Gabrielian met Tuesday at the United Kingdom House of Commons with representatives of both Houses and prominent members of the Armenian community in the UK. The event was organized by Armenia Solidarity group and supported by the London-based Nor Seroundi Dzain (New Generation’s Vice) Magazine. The Armenian foreign ministry said the meeting was dedicated to two motions submitted to the parliament suggesting debates on Turkish blockade of Armenia and Armenian Genocide. One of the motions, suggesting debates over the Armenian genocide was submitted by Bob Spink from the Conservative Party. It has been endorsed so far by 68 parliament members. The second motion on Turkish blockade of Armenia was submitted by Nia Griffith from the Labor party and supported by 66 MPs. The Armenian ministry said the ambassador thanked British MPs for their efforts urging debates on these two very important problems. He spoke extensively on Armenia’s approaches to these and other issues and called on the MPs to use Britain’s close ties with Turkey to force it to open border with Armenia and establish relations with it.
