The adoption by the US Senate of Armenian Genocide resolution lies on the political plane and it does not imply any consequences for Turkey, ARF Dashnaktsutyun member Kiro Manoyan told reporters on Wednesday.
According to him, this is precisely what is connected with the fact that for over 30 years this issue has been stubbornly not pushed through to the House.
"The White House is trying to show Turkey that it is opposed to the possible adoption of a resolution. The question can return to the Senate at any time, since the senators did not oppose the resolution, but against including this issue in the agenda," he noted.
Manoyan added that this decision is directly related to political expediency.
"The best way to combat genocide is not only condemnation, but also punishment. Turkey should be held accountable, not just recognized. Armenia needs to work in this direction," he added.
The House of Representatives adopted a resolution recognizing the Armenian Genocide in October. A similar resolution has not yet been pushed through to the agenda of the US Senate discussions.
