Armenian National Committee welcomes appointment of new Australian FM

21:02, 04.03.2012 Region: World News, Armenia Theme: Politics

The Armenian National Committee (ANC) welcomed former New South Wales Premier Bob Carr’s appointment as FM of Australia. Carr has had a considerable contribution to the discussion of the Armenian Cause in Australia, ANC Australia informed Armenian News-NEWS.am.  

“We are convinced that Carr’s appointment as FM will move Australia with yet another step toward recognizing the Armenian Genocide,” ANC Australia Executive Director Varant Meguerditchian stated.    

Back in 1997, the Australian state of New South Wales had recognized the Armenian Genocide, and Bob Carr was very instrumental in this recognition process.
