2531) What Are The Points Regarding U.N. Position On The Armenian Allegation of Genocide?

  1. Controversial 1985 Subcommittee Report Was Neither “Accepted” Or “Received” By U.N.

  2. U.N. Spokesman Confirmed That U.N. Has Not “Approved Or Endorsed” [The] Report Labeling The Armenian Experience As Genocide.”

    He Repeated In April Of This Year: “as For Armenia, In Any Case, The UN Hasn’t Expressed Any Position On Incidents That Took Place Long Before The United Nations Was Established.”
See below:

Text Of The Resolution:

(23) In August 1985, after extensive study and deliberation, the United Nations SubCommission on Prevention of Discrimination and Protection of Minorities voted 14 to 1 to accept a report entitled `Study of the Question of the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide,' which stated `[t]he Nazi aberration has unfortunately not been the only case of genocide in the 20th century. Among other examples which can be cited as qualifying are . . . the Ottoman massacre of Armenians in 1915-1916'.

(24) This report also explained that `[a]t least 1,000,000, and possibly well over half of the Armenian population, are reliably estimated to have been killed or death marched by independent authorities and eye-witnesses. This is corroborated by reports in United States, German and British archives and of contemporary diplomats in the Ottoman Empire, including those of its ally Germany.'.

Commentary And Analysis:

Finding 23 Is Incorrect. The U.N. Subcommission Did Not “Accept” The Report. Instead, It Considered Whether Even To ”Recevied” The Report And Decided Not To. In The End, It “[Took] Note” Of The Study. The Last Time This Report Was Referred To In Legislation
