Georgia’s Armenians Call on Saakashvili to Recognize the Genocide

TBILISI (Combined Sources)–Georgia’s Armenian minority has called on President Mikheil Saakashvili and the Georgian Parliament to officially recognize the Armenian Genocide.

The request, which came in a letter co-signed by the Armenian Community of Georgia, The Armenian Cooperation Centre of Georgia and the Association of Armenian Students of Georgia, asks that a bill recognizing the Genocide be drafted. It was sent Monday to Saakashvili,  the chairpersons of Georgia’s parliament and the leaders of its parliamentary fractions. Similar letters were also written to ethnic Armenian members of parliament. 

The letter also asks that the members of parliament issue a statement on the Armenian Genocide during the parliamentary session before April 24, and to request that the parliament commemorate the Genocide.
