BRUSSELS — The Foreign Affairs Committee of the Belgian Chamber of Deputies on Tuesday passed a draft resolution on the commemoration of the centenary of the Armenian Genocide, Belgian websites report.

Earlier, the parliamentary majority introduced a draft bill to be adopted at the plenary session before the recess. Draft bills were also introduced by Humanist Democratic Centre, Socialist Party and “Flemish Interest”.

The resolution must now be voted in a plenary session of the House. Three coalition parties abstained from voting.

Last month Belgian Prime Minister Charles Michel recognized on behalf of his government the Armenian Genocide perpetrated at the hands of the Ottoman Empire 100 years ago. The Belgian PM said the 1915-1917 events should be “considered genocide”.
