YEREVAN — Harlem Désir, France’s Secretary of State for European Affairs, confessed that his soul was shattered after he visited the Armenian Genocide memorial complex at Tsitsernakaberd and saw the exhibits at the Armenian Genocide Museum-Institute, according to Armenpress.

Désir emphasizes that he could not leave Armenia without visiting Tsitsernakaberd Memorial, especially because it is the Armenian Genocide centennial this year and the President of his country François Hollande honored the memory of the victims there.

“Humanity did not learn lessons from the Armenian Genocide, and today we have what we have. For this reason it is very important to preserve memories. The struggle for the recognition of the Armenian Genocide must continue in every country, including Turkey. Turkey must face its past, the same way Germany did. It’s very important for the reconciliation and this is the essence of France’s message. To the highest possible extent we raise the issue of the recognition of the Armenian Genocide in all countries,” Désir concluded.
