Armenian Genocide recognition on Syrian parliament agenda: lawmakers

PanARMENIAN.Net - Discussions on the recognition and condemnation of the Armenian Genocide are underway at the Syrian parliament, lawmakers from the People’s Council Omar al Arabi and Alan Bakr said Tuesday, November 29.

At a Yerevan-hosted meeting with Armenia's Deputy Parliament Speaker Eduard Sharmazanov, the MPs thanked Armenia for supporting Syria and its people in times of hardships.

Sharmazanov said, in turn, that the Armenian-Syrian friendship has a centuries-old history, which has further strengthened after Syria gave shelter to the thousands of Armenian migrants who had survived the Genocide at the hands of the Ottoman Empire.

Also, the lawmakers dwelled upon the crisis in Syria, with the Armenian MP stressing the country's position in the struggle against terrorism.

The Charge d’Affaires of Syria to Armenia Essam Nayyal also attended the meeting.
