Turkish MPs Garo Paylan and Ebru Günay of the Peoples' Democratic Party (HDP) delivered strong statements during a conference at the National Congress of Argentina on Wednesday, Prensa Armenia reported.
"The same genocide against the Armenians 105 years ago, could be repeated today against the Kurds," said Garo Paylan. "I am very grateful for Argentina's recognition of the Armenian Genocide. Many countries recognized it, but did this stop our pain? We will achieve justice when the Turkish Parliament recognizes the Armenian Genocide," said the Deputy. "Only a truly democratic Turkey will recognize the genocide against the Armenian people."
Ebru Günay said that the HDP party has gender parity and that those accused of gender violence or those who exercise polygamy are not allowed to participate in it.
"It is very difficult to fight for the rights of different peoples in an almost fascist environment,” she said.
