On the occasion of the 105th anniversary of the Genocide against Armenians, Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan and Mrs. Anna Hakobyan visited the Tsitsernakaberd Memorial.
Prime Minister Pashinyan delivered a message from the heights of Tsitsernakaberd, in which he stated:
“Due to the Genocide against Armenians, the Armenian people not only suffered enormous human losses, but were subjected to deportation and a cultural genocide. The loss of the spiritual and religious heritage was irreparable; its material damage was enormous. The Genocide against Armenians has been officially recognized by 30 countries around the world, and we are grateful to all those states, international organizations, religious and secular leaders who expressed solidarity with the Armenian people and recognized and condemned the Genocide against Armenians”.
According to the RA Prime Minister, as a result of the Genocide that had been perpetrated at a state level for many years, Western Armenia was completely emptied of Armenians. 1.5 million of our compatriots were killed, hundreds of thousands of Armenians became refugees, deprived of the right to live in their historical homeland.
