YEREVAN.- The Genocide denial is continuation of the crime committed in the beginning of the last century, Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan said.

Armenia must manage to deliver this message to all world stated and nations, he said on Saturday addressing the participants of the Republican Party’s Congress held in Yerevan.

“Crime committed against the Armenians continues now. It continues as the fact is denied. All Armenians and people in general must stop the crime,” he said.

He stressed that Armenia and the Diaspora continue their joint efforts into the process of recognition and condemnation of the Armenian Genocide.

The fact of the Armenian Genocide is recognized by many states. It was first recognized in 1965 by Uruguay. In general, the Armenian Genocide in Ottoman Turkey has already been recognized by 21 countries and 43 out of 50 U.S. states.
