UK parliament to debate Armenian Genocide bill

PanARMENIAN.Net - A bill on the recognition of the Armenian Genocide will be debated in the parliament of the United Kingdom, the Armenian National Committee of the United Kingdom reveals.

The first reading of the bill introduced by Conservative MP Tim Loughton will take place in the House of Commons on November 9.

If the bill passes this stage, the UK would be a step closer to formally recognizing the Armenian Genocide.

On April 24, 1915, a large group of Armenian intellectuals was rounded up and assassinated in Constantinople by the Ottoman government. On April 24, 2021, Armenians worldwide commemorated the 106th anniversary of the Genocide which continued until 1923. Some three dozen countries, hundreds of local government bodies and international organizations have so far recognized the killings of 1.5 million Armenians as Genocide. Turkey denies to this day.
