The political group Spanish Esquerra Republicana de Catalunya (ERC, republican Left of Catalonia) presented Wednesday June 14 a private bill which it counts deposited with the Congress of the deputies asking this Room to recognize the genocide of the Armenians in 1915 organized by the Turkish army and paramilitary militia. Moreover, ll' ERC claims the implication of the Government and the European Union as mediators to allow that is to exceed the conflict.

In their initiative, the republicans complain that still today Turkey denies these crimes against humanity and considérent this established fact as “a permanent cause of conflict between the two countries and a factor of destabilization in the area”.

Thus, the spokesman of the ERC and Member of the Commission of the Foreign Affairs of the Congress, Rosa Bonàs considers it regrettable that the Spanish State “still today is not counted among the states which recognized the Armenian genocide like a crime against humanity”. Rosa Bonàs points out that the estimates carried out on the consequences of the Armenian genocide determine the number of victims to more than one million auxquel it is necessary to add an unspecified number of deportees.

For that, it considers that the Congress must “take this step in favour of the historical recognition of the crimes perpetrated”. “Still today nonthe recognition on behalf of Turkey of the crimes against the humanity made in these years supposes the persistence of a permanent cause of conflict between the two states” according to the deputy Catalan woman.

Finally, the ERC requests the Spanish executive and the European Union for “a participation activates and decided and insists that the Turkish State recognizes the genocide like a proof of harmony with Arménie and as the mark of a new climate of goodwill in the relations between the two countries and a new balance in regional balances”.

The Spanish Parliament (the general Cortes) includes/understands two Rooms: the Senate and the Congress of the deputies. Among the political formations are represented in current Congrès of the deputies is Esquerra republicana of Catalunya (ERC), Catalan formation of left created into 1931 which dominated the Catalan political scene until the beginning of the Spanish civil war.

To remain with the capacity, Spanish the Prime Minister Zapatero depends on the ERC, which also forms part of the coalition of the Catalan government with the sister party of the PSOE, the Catalan socialist Party (Party Socialist de Catalunya, PSC).
