Yerevan/Mediamax/. The Austrian parliament today adopted a resolution condemning the Armenian Genocide.

As Bedo Demirdjian, Communications and PR Officer at European Armenian Federation for Justice and Democracy (EAFJD) told Mediamax’s correspondent, the joint statement adopted by 6 political parties represented in the Austrian parliament notes that the mass killings of Armenians in the Ottoman Empire 100 years ago were a genocide’.

“The resolution also points out Austria’s moral responsibility for recognizing the Armenian Genocide as during the World War I, Austria-Hungary and German Empire were the allies of the Ottoman Turkey”, said Bedo Demirdjian.

He added that the Austrian MPs will respect the memory of the Armenian Genocide victims with a moment of silence tomorrow.

According to Bedo Demirdjian, on April 24, the Austrian official delegation in Yerevan will be represented by Austria’s Ambassador to Armenia.
