YEREVAN (Armenpress)—The Parliament of the Basque Country on Thursday adopted a statement condemning the Armenian Genocide. The Basque resolution comes following a resolution recognizing the Armenian Genocide adopted in the European Parliament this week.
“We think that the record, recognition and the establishment of justice are fundamental values for the progressive and constructive coexistence of these two nations in the future, as we realize that the reconciliation can be sustainable only in case of one truth and one memory,” the resolution says.
The Basque parliament officially recognized the Armenian Genocide in 2007. It has also recognized the independence of the Artsakh Republic.
