YEREVAN (Armenpress)–The youth divisions of Armenia’s political parties–student councils–and a number of non-government organizations (NGOs) released a joint statement on Tuesday condemning the Turkish media for deliberately distorting historical facts about the Armenian genocide.
The deputy head of the Armenian NGO youth division–Abraham Bakhchagulian–said youth must work for the recognition of the Armenian genocide–and are ready to organize various events to attain that goal.
He said it is inadmissible to talk about the Armenian genocide in a dismissive manner–as the Turkish mass media and political elite do–in order to hinder the process of the international recognition of the Armenian genocide.
"We condemn the activity of the organizations and people who aim to cast doubt on the Armenian genocide and impede the process of condemning this crime against humanity. Armenian youth are determined and united in its position to promote the recognition of the Armenian genocide," the statement reads.
