Iranian-Armenian students urge Hassan Rouhani to recognize the Armenian Genocide
YEREVAN, 11 APRIL, ARMENPRESS. Iranian-Armenian students have sent an open letter to President of the Islamic Republic of Iran Hassan Rouhani, urging him to recognize the Armenian Genocide. As “Armenpress” reports, citing Asbarez, the authors of the letter have called the Iranian President’s attention to Turkey’s destructive policy in the region, stating that Turkey not only denies the genocide that took the lives of 1.5 million Armenians in the Ottoman Empire, but also backs terrorist groups killing several innocent civilians in Iraq and Syria.
Emphasizing the peaceful coexistence of different ethnic and religious minorities, the Iranian-Armenian students urge Rouhani to recognize the Armenian Genocide to prevent future crimes.
