The Senate must adopt a resolution recognizing the Armenian Genocide, following the example of the House of Representatives, said senator Robert Menendez, who in his speech also condemned Turkey’s attacks on Syrian Kurds and its unacceptable behavior in the region.
Robert Menendez urges US Senate to recognize Armenian Genocide
STEPANAKERT, NOVEMBER 8, ARTSAKHPRESS: Menendez noted the attack by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s guards in Washington on peaceful demonstrators, adding that after the adoption of the resolution on the Armenian Genocide in the House of Representatives, Ankara is making every effort to ban the adoption of such a resolution in the Senate as well, Asbarez reported.
According to him, Turkey understands that if the resolution is put to a vote, it will be adopted. Menendez noted that the Senate should not concede under pressure from Turkey, and the Armenian Genocide should be recognized immediately.
