The Social Democrat Hunchakian Party Central Committee welcomes the adoption of H. Res. 296, recognizing the Armenian Genocide by the US House of Representatives, and expresses its gratitude toward all members who voted for it.

This historical resolution not only affirms the fact of the Armenian Genocide, but completely rejects any appearance or attempts of genocide denial. The resolution calls on the administration to adopt a policy of officially recognizing, commemorating and raising awareness of the Armenian Genocide.

The passage of the resolution is undeniably the result of new geopolitical realities on the one hand and on the other hand, decades of political organizing and lobbying by the Armenian-American community at the federal and state levels.

It is our hope that this decisive move by the US House of Representatives will encourage the US Senate to adopt the same resolution and compel the President to properly recognize the Armenian Genocide. As such, the issue of genocide recognition can once and for all be removed from the political agenda and allow us to finally move beyond the stage of recognition and onto the most important work on the matters of restitution and restoration.

  1. It is good to have this political milestone accomplished……..It must not be forgotten that the actions that a nation takes are based on their own interests. At the end, the armenian nation needs to stand on its own two feet based on its own national interests. And it must be able to defend its own interest with its own metal ladle spoon……..
