  • [01] GAROYIAN ARMENIAN GENOCIDE

  • [01] GAROYIAN ARMENIAN GENOCIDE

    Cyprus has always stood by the side of the Armenian people with regard to their struggle for recognition of the Armenian Genocide, pledged House of Representatives Speaker Marios Garoyian.

    In his opening address Thursday at the Conference on The Armenian Genocide and International Law in Beirut, Garoyian noted whether committed in times of peace or war Genocide constitutes a crime, condemnable and punishable under International Law.

    Garoyian said that "although the United Nations Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide provides for an effective international tool against this crime, adhering to a Convention is only the first important step of what should actually and ultimately be pursued.

    Referring to the Armenian Genocide, Garoyian said that the Genocide of one and a half million Armenians by the Ottomans, in and around the year 1915, undoubtedly constitutes such a crime, for which Turkey has been toiling to prevent recognition.
