Socialists and Democrats political group of the European Parliament condemns all occurrences of crimes against humanity and genocide and strongly deplores any attempts to deny them, the French MEP Sylvie Guillaume told Armenian News –   

According to her, the European Parliament resolution came to a very key moment. “Its message is clear: not only encouraging Turkish authorities to use the commemoration of the centenary of the Armenian genocide as an opportunity for Turkey to continue its efforts to come to terms with its past and prepare for reconciliation with Armenia, but above all, we ask Turkey to recognize the Armenian Genocide,” the French MEP said.

On April 15 the European Parliament adopted by a majority vote a resolution condemning the Armenian Genocide and calling on Turkey to pave the way for reconciliation with Armenia.
