Prime minister of Canada recognizes Armenian Genocide


The Prime Minister of Canada, the Right Honourable Stephen Harper, made a clear statement recognizing the historical fact of the Armenian Genocide.

In response to a reporter's question regarding the Armenian Genocide, the Prime Minister said: “That was a vote held in the last Parliament [Motion M-380 - April 21, 2004]. As you recall, Parliament passed that resolution recognizing the Armenian Genocide. Our party supported that resolution and we continue to recognize that parliamentary resolution”.

Dr. Vagharch Ehramdjian, Chairman of the Armenian National Committee of Canada (ANCC), thanked the Prime Minister Harper, on behalf of the Canadian Armenian Community, for his historic statement.
