After a century Turkey must immediately recognize the Armenian Genocide, Honduras newspaper El Heraldo reports.
“It is high time for this to happen, since a whole century has passed after the events committed on the territory of Turkey. Two million unarmed and peaceful Armenian residents, including women and older people were killed,” the newspaper writes.
The commemoration events will take place in Yerevan, as well as among Diaspora communities scattered all over the world. Numerous conferences, commemoration evenings and exhibitions will tell about the tragedy, which began at the end of the 19th century and continued till 1923.
“Modern Turkey established by the Young Turks is watchful about the rights of its country’s minorities – Armenians, Kurds and Greeks. The modern Turkey leaders seem to be unable to make a step forward and put an end to this century-old pain. Conversely, Ankara authorities decided to distract the attention from the 100th Anniversary of the Armenian Genocide in a dishonest and petty way, adjusting its date to that of the celebration of the victory at Gallpoli battle, which took place during the same period
However, this trick had no impact on the international community. A number of different international delegations will visit Armenia. The presidents of Russia and France will visit Yerevan together with other leaders to pay tribute to the memory of the Armenian Genocide victims,” the newspaper writes.
