House of Representatives of Cyprus honored Armenian genocide victims

YEREVAN, APRIL 19, ARMENPRESS. The House of Representatives, on April 18, observed a minute’s silence for the victims of the Armenian genocide, with the body pledging to “fight for a world where peace and justice prevail and where the atrocities of the past never happen again”, reports CyprusMail.

In remarks, acting House President Zacharias Koulias noted that April 24 marks the “black anniversary” of the Armenian genocide.

Over the span of several years, he noted, millions of Armenians were “violently displaced, subjected to hardship and massacred, in a relentless attempt at extinguishing their existence”.

Koulias recalled also that the Republic of Cyprus was the second nation in the world to recognise the Armenian genocide, in 1975.
