PARIS—A resolution recognizing the Armenian Genocide was adopted by the 18th annual session of the Inter-Parliamentary Assembly of Orthodoxy, a 28-member group representing nations where the orthodox religion is practiced.
The resolution passed by the Inter-Parliamentary Assembly of Orthodoxy said: “We call on the international community to condemn the genocide the Ottoman Empire perpetrated against Armenians, Greeks and Assyrians.” It also calls on Turley to acknowledge and accept its responsibility for the sake of restoration of historical justice.
The measure was introduced by the delegation from Armenia, which included members of the Armenian parliament, Mkrtich Minasyan and Ruzan Khachatryan, who recently returned from Paris.
After a one-hour debate, the resolution was adopted unanimously.
The 28 states represented in the Inter-Parliamentary Assembly of Orthodoxy include Armenia, Kazakhstan, Albania, Syria, Lebanon and Saudi Arabia.
