Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan has welcomed the move by the US House of Representatives to acknowledge the Armenian Genocide in the recently adopted landmark resolution.
In an official statement on Tuesday, the prime minister praised the passage of H.Res.296 as a “powerful step towards re-establishing historical justice and truth”, considering it also a great consolation to the heirs of many Genocide survivors.
“Accept my heartfelt congratulations and admiration to the descendants of those US-Armenians whose selfless political and social activity, and resoluteness served as the driving force and enthusiasm behind the historic vote. Never again,” he said.
The House overwhelmingly passed the resolution on Tuesday by a vote of 405 to 11 with 3 voting present.
