Garo Paylan: Place to confront Armenian Genocide issue is Turkey’s parliament
STEPANAKERT, APRIL 24, ARTSAKHPRESS: Paylan recalled that 105 years have passed since the Armenian Genocide, but there still are streets in Turkey named after the leaders of the Committee of Union and Progress (i.e., Young Turks) which had organized this tragedy.
"Dozens of parliaments have recognized the Armenian Genocide, but they have not healed our [Armenians] wounds; it must be spoken in our [Turkey] parliament, first and foremost," Paylan said. "Armenians who are scattered in various countries of the world can find justice [solely] in the parliament of Turkey. The place for real confronting [this matter] is the [Turkish] parliament. Tomorrow I will propose to the parliament to confront and give a name to that crime; I will demand that justice be done."
