Dear Friends & Supporters

VENEZUELAN PARLIAMENT ADOPTS ARMENIAN GENOCIDE RESOLUTION

The Parliament of Venezuela adopted a Resolution on 14 July 2005 recognising the Armenian Genocide, introduced by Parliament Member Victor Hugo Morales and lawyer Janet Madris.

Archbishop Komitas Ohanian and Grigor Postalian represented Venezuela's Armenian community at the Parliamentary session.

The Resolution also calls on the European Union to deny Turkey EU membership unless and until that country recognised the Armenian Genocide.
