WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S Senator Charles (Chuck) Schumer announced that he will co-sponsor bipartisan Senate Resolution (S.Res.136) which aims to remember and commemorate the 102nd anniversary of the Armenian Genocide. The resolution, introduced by Senator Robert Menendez, explicitly says that the President should work toward a constructive Armenian-Turkish relationship that includes the full acknowledgement by the Government of the Republic of Turkey of the facts about the Armenian Genocide.
“All countries should recognize the horrific genocide that occurred 102 years ago to the Armenian people,” said Senator Schumer. “It is my sacred duty to speak out against the terrors of the past and against those who cannot speak of it themselves and that’s why I am a proud co-sponsor of this Senate resolution. I stand with the worldwide Armenian community in labeling the atrocities against the Armenian people as genocide.”
