Senator Robert Menendez could not hide tears when speaking about the horrors of the Armenian Genocide.
The Armenian Genocide resolution passed the Senate on Thursday with unanimous consent.
“Today, by passing my Armenian Genocide resolution, the Senate finally stood up to confirm history: What happened in Armenia was – most assuredly – genocide. There is no other word for it. There is no euphemism. There is no avoiding it,” he tweeted after the resolution was adopted.
