The President of Poland thanked Sarkisian for the invitation and warm welcome, noting that “This is a very important moment for Poland and for your region, since Poland is presiding over the EU. It is important for Armenia because your country has embarked on the road of Euro-integration.

    The Polish people has suffered greatly from the Nazi Germans and too, the USSR. Also, in our Armenian history – in the 17th century – Armeniansfleeing persecutions had been welcome to Poland.

    Before coming to Tsitsernakaberd, the Polish President went to Bazarbaijan where he had to listen to its Sultan Ilham Heydar-ugly Alieyv’s fairy tails about fictitious ancient “Azeris” contributing to the development of Polish nation.

    In response, Armenian President was able to produce dozens of Armenian-Polish famous people who are really known in Poland for centuries. Unfortunately, oil and gas politics are more important to EU which Poland is a part of…

    Poland is the country, where Holocaust (Auschwitz) took place, and Raphael Lempkin came from.

    It is a disgrace, while the Polish President is confirming the Historic fact and acknowledging it, the

    real victims’ descendants of the Shoah are still hesitant about recognizing THE FIRST GENOCIDE OF

    THE 20TH CENTURY! Maneuvering with the Genocide fact is even a greater Sin and Disgrace! How would

    they have felt about the fact, that if till today the Holocaust wasn’t recognized? Let the hesitators switch

    shoes with the Armenians and think a little bit, what they have been doing for 96 years, and look

    into the mirror!
