No matter what kind of compensation it will be we must reverberate to our roots,” mentioned the minister.
“Because of Non-recognition of Armenian genocide and absence of its condemnation genocides of other nations took place. It is the reason we had such tragic events in our history like in Baku and Sumgait as well as the war which was imposed to Armenian nation,” said Seyran Ohanyan stressing the importance of giving proper response by unity and our victory.
Seyran Ohanyan mentioned that the recognition of Armenian genocide by several countries is a result of hard work of a number of Armenian organizations and expressed gratitude to those organizations and their representatives.
