The House's decision to recognize the Armenian Genocide was very important, Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan said when speaking at the Institute for International Political Studies.
There were 49 states that had recognized the Armenian Genocide before the House voted to adopt a resolution, he added.
“It is a very important decision. International recognition is not only the matter of recognition of history, it is a matter of security and global movement of genocide prevention. It is important tool for international security and stability, and I hope this decision of the House will trigger a new wave of international recognition worldwide,” Pashinyan said.
The Prime Minister emphasized that the genocides, such as Yazidi genocide, continue in the contemporary world.
