Belgium looks to adopt law to criminalize Genocide denial

PanARMENIAN.Net - President of the Belgian Senate Christine Defraigne visited Tsitsernakaberd Armenian Genocide memorial on Tuesday, November 1. Accompanying the guest were Vice-Speaker of the Armenian National Assembly Hermine Naghdalyan and Head of the Armenia-Belgium parliamentary friendship group Shirak Torosyan.

Christine Defraigne and members of her delegation laid flowers at the memorial and paid tribute to the memory of the 1.5 million victims with a moment of silence.

At the memorial, Defraigne said Belgium attaches great importance to the adoption of a bill criminalizing the denial of the Armenian Genocide, "which is important for the successors of both the victims and the perpetrators."

Also, the Belgian official weighed in on the conflict in Nagorno Karabakh, expressing her support to the OSCE Minsk Group Co-chairs.
