Turkish-Armenian lawmaker Garo Paylan (HDP) has addressed the US House of Representatives’ recognition of the Armenian Genocide.
Only Turkish parliament can heal Armenian people’s wounds, says Garo Paylan
STEPANAKERT, OCTOBER 30, ARTSAKHPRESS-ARMENPRESS: In a statement published on his official Facebook account, Paylan noted that after dozens of parliaments the latest recognition came from the US House of Representatives.
“Our pain has become the subject of debates of others’ parliaments, because for 105 years my country is denying the Armenian people’s great tragedy. The only parliament that is able to heal the Armenian people’s wounds is the Turkish parliament, where I am a member of,” Paylan said.
On October 29 the US House of Representatives adopted the Armenian Genocide Resolution (H.Res.296) by a vote of 405 to 11 with 3 voting present.
