YEREVAN—Given that the Armenia-Turkey protocols have been submitted for ratification to Armenia’s National Assembly, the Armenian Revolutionary Federation has launched an email campaign directed at all members of the parliament urging them to not ratify the protocols in their current state.
A five-language (Armenian, English, Russian, French, Spanish) Web site has been established, through which the electronic letters can be dispatched to the members of parliament. The Web address is www.notoprotocols.net
“In their present form, the protocols satisfy two preconditions set by Turkey for normalizing its relations with Armenia, namely giving up any land claims from Turkey and effectively abandoning the pursuit of the international recognition of the Armenian Genocide. Moreover, the ratification process of the protocols satisfies Turkey’s third precondition of making Armenia-Turkey relations conditional upon the resolution of the Artsakh issue,” said an appeal issued by the ARF in announcing this campaign.
All Armenians are urged to immediately take part in this campaign and make their voices heard by sending an email appeal via notoprotocols.net.
This campaign is designed to join the voices of all Armenians–Diaspora and homeland–heard on this matter and to emphasize that all Armenians have a stake in Armenia’s national interests.
