The Ottomans committed a genocide against the Armenians, and I urge the Czech parliament to capitalize on the example of German’s Bundestag, which recognized the Armenian Genocide in the Ottoman Empire, President of the Czech Republic, Miloš Zeman, said in an interview with Parlamentní listy.
Zeman noted that he will discuss the aforementioned issue with the Czech Republic FM Lubomír Zaorálek after returning from Armenia.
He also recalled that the mass killings of the Armenians in the Ottoman Empire have been recognized by Russia, Germany, France, Poland, Slovakia and other countries.
Miloš Zeman will arrive in Armenia Tuesday. The official part of his visit will start Wednesday and with the visit to the Armenian Genocide Museum. Following this, the Czech leader will be received by his Armenian counterpart Serzh Sargsyan.
