1022) Genocide: Wac Recommends Armenia To Appeal To Un International Court

“I would like to indicate the steps that should be taken in our opinion to solve the problem of recognition of the Armenian Genocide,” President of the Union of Armenians of Russia (UAR) and the World Armenian Congress (WAC) Ara Abrahamyan stated during the Armenia-Diaspora Third All-Armenian Forum. It is evident that the only opportunity to attain international and legal conclusion on responsibility for the crime is a decision of an international competent forum or international court. Protracting the solution of that issue is not in line with interests of Armenia, Turkey or superpowers, Abrahamyan noted. . .

In his words, the expert group at WAC has recommended that the Government of Armenia appeal to the UN International Court on the basis of article IX of the Convention of Preventing Genocide Crime and Punishment for It. The appeal to the International Court cannot be considered as hostile action and cannot entail negative political consequences for Armenia, Ara Abrahamyan stated. To the contrary, it can put an end to the past, which darkened relations with Turkey for decades. “Unfortunately, we did not get a response to our proposal up to now. The issue is to all appearance under consideration by the MFA still,” the UAR President said.
