President Donald Trump has signed the Elie Wiesel Genocide and Atrocities Prevention Act, a bipartisan measure previously adopted overwhelmingly in the Senate and House, the Armenian National Committee of America (ANCA)reported.

This new law represents a victory for the genocide prevention, codifying previous measures  and putting in place a set of policies and processes to prevent new atrocities, ANCA said in a statement.

“The ANCA welcomes the President’s signature on the Elie Wiesel Genocide and Atrocities Prevention Act, and thanks all the legislators who spearheaded and supported this landmark bipartisan genocide prevention measure,” said ANCA Executive Director Aram Suren Hamparian. “As Armenian Americans – descendants of the survivors of the Armenian Genocide – we are particularly gratified to see a measure signed into law that speaks to transitional justice, criminal accountability, and the moral imperative to apply the lessons of past genocides in seeking to prevent new atrocities.”
