Austrian MP: Europe owes Genocide recognition to Armenian people

PanARMENIAN.Net - That Azerbaijan harbors a hostile attitude towards the Armenians in Nagorno Karabakh is nothing new, Austrian MP, European Parliament member said.

“But the accent of the Azerbaijani President reached a new level of aggression. In addition I am deeply shocked that the international interest in the fate of the Armenians is so small and that there were slightly no reactions to the scandalous incitement of the Azerbaijani President. Europe still owes the Armenian people the recognition and the condemnation of the Armenian Genocide. The EU has to quit Turkey's status as a candidate country immediately,” Ewald Stadler told a PanARMENIAN.Net reporter.

“Estimated thirty percent of Armenians cannot live in their ancestral homeland because of the neighbor’s aggressions. Armenia is the first country to adopt Christianity as a state religion. For this reasons it is not understandable why the EU and the so called Western Community of values is indifferent and inactive. The fossil energy sources of the Caspian Sea seem to be more important than the fact that Armenia and the EU share the Christian roots and values. Nevertheless, I wish the Armenian people and especially the people of Nagorno Karabakh a blessed and peaceful future,” he said.
