The Government of Western Armenia draws the attention of the international community to the inaction of the Turkish authorities in providing adequate assistance to the indigenous peoples living in their own territory, disregarding their fundamental rights, and demands the active intervention of the States that signed the Treaty of Sevres to restore the legal foundations of the Republic of Western Armenia, so that the indigenous peoples are protected by their own State.
