Chairman Royce Applauds Germany’s Recognition of Armenian Genocide

WASHINGTON, D.C. – House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Ed Royce (R-CA) applauded yesterday’s vote by the German Bundestag to recognize the Armenian Genocide, during which 1.5 million innocent lives were taken.

“Germany’s vote to recognize the Armenian Genocide is a major event.  Acknowledging this dark moment in history is a victory for human rights.  The annihilation of millions of Armenians was genocide.  Period.  And the 1.5 million innocent men, women, and children whose lives were taken deserve recognition.”

Note:  Chairman Royce is an active member of the Congressional Caucus on Armenian Issues.  In April of 2014, Royce led a bipartisan delegation to Armenia during which the delegation commemorated the 99th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide and placed a wreath at Tsitsernakaberd, the national memorial to the Genocide.
