YEREVAN, OCTOBER 30, ARMENPRESS. Ruling My Step bloc lawmaker Artak Manukyan highlighted the US House recognition of the Armenian Genocide, calling the move a “very important step”.
He saluted the US House passage of H.Res.296 at parliamentary committee debates today in parliament.
“Before starting the debates I would like to salute the adoption of the resolution in the US House of Representatives. This is a very important step, and it must contribute to the internationalization of genocide issues,” Manukyan said.
Vladimir Vardanyan, MP from the same faction who also serves as Chair of the State-Legal Affairs Committee of Parliament, said the adoption is perhaps a belated but necessary step by the United States.
