YEREVAN. – The tasks, which are put before the draft statement on the condemnation of the genocide that the terrorist groups carried out against the Yazidi people in Iraq in 2014, are humanitarian and universal, first and foremost.
Armen Ashotyan, who is Chairman of the Standing Committee on Foreign Relations of the National Assembly (NA) of Armenia and also co-author of the said draft statement, on Monday noted about the aforementioned at the parliamentary debates of this draft statement.
NA Vice Chairman Eduard Sharmazanov, for his part, positively assessed the fact that the opposition and the authorities of Armenia have a single position on the genocide issue.
“I have no doubt that the draft will pass unanimously,” he noted, in particular. “We also need to be the leader against the genocide phenomenon and, more importantly, [against] the fake genocides about which various newly created states attempt to speak.”
