Georgia doesn't recognize Armenian Genocide because of dependence on Turkey and Azerbaijan

PanARMENIAN.Net - Every year on April 24 the Armenian community and the RA Embassy in Tbilisi organize a march from Saint Gevorg Church to the Armenian cemetery, Primate of the Georgian Diocese of the Armenian Apostolic Church, Bishop Vazgen Mirzakhanyan said in an interview with PanARMENIAN.Net

"Armenians of Tbilisi repeatedly sent letters to the parliament urging to recognize the Genocide but no reaction followed. I suppose, the matter is being hampered by Georgia's economic dependence on Turkey and Azerbaijan. However, progress is observed. All newspapers cover our April 24 actions. When we stuck posters dedicated to the 90th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide, policemen did not allow anyone to tear them off. The Armenian community of Georgia hopes for the better. Otherwise, it will be hard to survive," he said.
