Uruguayan Deputy Daniel Radio asked the authorities of his country to recognize the Republic of Nagorno-Karabakh in the commemoration of the 101st anniversary of the Armenian Genocide in Montevideo, on Monday April 25, Prensa Armenia reported.
Radio called for the recognition of the Republic of Nagorno Karabakh by Uruguay, since "there are features that allows our country to make this choice. This is not an utopia: it is time for Uruguay to seriously consider this possibility and hopefully undertake that path."
"I would love that in fifty years, the grandson of any of us could hear a Legislator express their pride because Uruguay was the first country to recognize Nagorno-Karabakh," added Radio.
During the act organized by the Armenian National Committee of Uruguay and the House of Representatives, documents related to the process of approval of Law Nº 13.326 (the first law in the world to recognize the Armenian Genocide) were given to the Armenian organization.
The Armenian National Committee of Uruguay also recognized parliamentary work of Deputy Daniel Radio Daniel with a commemorative plaque.
"This April 24 is not like others. This April 24th is bloodstained. Today we can not and should not remember only the 1.500.000 martyrs without honoring the memory of the dozens of young people who have lost their lives these days defending the borders of Nagorno-Karabakh after the brutal aggression of Azerbaijan," said Sarkis Panosian on behalf of the Armenian National Committee of Uruguay.
