Armenian community turned to the President and the Parliament of Georgia and called on them to consider recognition of Armenian Genocide in Ottoman Empire - RIA Novosti.gt-en-newsitem-inside
"Letters with a request to initiate the bill were sent to the head of state, chairmen of the Parliament and parliamentary fractions, and also to members of Georgian parliament of Armenian nationality", the statement says.
Armenian organisations called on Georgian MPs of Armenian origin to deliver a speech at the parliamentary session before April 24th, the Day of Armenian Genocide Victims memory, and call on the Parliament to honour memory of innocent victims of the Genocide of 1915-1923.
The initiators are NGOs: Armenian Community of Georgia, Armenian Center of Cooperation in Georgia and Association of Armenian Students in Georgia.
The fact of the Armenian Genocide is recognized by many countries. The first was Uruguay in 1965, then followed Russia, France, Italy, Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium, Poland, Lithuania, Slovakia, Sweden, Switzerland, Greece, Cyprus, Lebanon, Canada, Venezuela, Argentina and 42 states of the USA.
Turkey traditionally denies accusations of massacring about 1.5 mln Armenians in WWI years and responds painfully to any criticism of the West in regard of the issue.
