YEREVAN. – The Presidents of France and Uruguay have become honorary chairmen of the regional committees on preparation to the Armenian Genocide Centennial, Diaspora Minister Hranush Hakobyan said in the parliament on Wednesday.
Attracting of high ranking politicians is a result of brilliant work by Armenia's leadership and the structures of the Armenian Diaspora, she added.
Hakobyan said 61 local commissions were set up in different countries, and each of them drafted a plan of events for 2014-2015 and even for next year.
“They adopted our common motto 'Remember and Demand' and forget-me-not, the symbol of the events,” she added.
