YEREVAN, SEPTEMBER 17, ARMENPRESS: Egypt could become the first Muslim country to recognize the Armenian Genocide of 1915 organized by the Ottoman Empire. As reported by Armenpress, this was published by the Italian website Vatican Insider, touching upon the unprecedented step of the lawyer Muhammad Saad Khairallah, who for the first time in the history has submitted an accusatory claim against Turkey on the organization of the Armenian Genocide. The Egyptian Court will consider the case on November 5.
