On April 24, 1915, Turkish police arrested and tortured 600 Armenian intellectuals. This was the beginning of the first genocide of the 20th century, in which 1.5 million Armenians died.

This was mentioned by Alexander Bouleris, a member of the Canadian House of Commons, in a speech dedicated to the 108th commemoration of the victims of the Armenian genocide, where it is stated: “On September 15, Talaat Pasha sent a telegram. “Previously, it was reported that the government had decided to eliminate all Armenians living in Turkey from the face of the country by the order of Jemiet (Ittihad). Those who disobey this order should not sit in the governing bodies. Without singling out women, children, the sick and the weak, without stopping in front of the most cruel measures, without listening to the voice of conscience, it must be stopped.”

And since December 12, 2022, Azerbaijan blocks Artsakh, the only road connecting the Syunik region, 120,000 Armenians are isolated without basic necessities and medicines. The international community should not be immune to this atrocity, and we must reaffirm our attitude towards it here and now.”
