(Conclusion and proposals)
Armen Ts. Marukyan
The Armenian Genocide is a historical reality awaiting today its internationalpolitical and international-legal resolution. Armenian historians have done a great job studying and presenting that crime of genocide committed against the Armenian people. Now it is high time to transfer the issue onto the international legal ground and, based on irrefutable facts, present well founded demands from the Republic of Turkey, the legal successor of the Ottoman Empire.
There are, of course, problems and complications of international-legal, as well as of political character involved; however, with the formulation of “a pan-Armenian conception concerning the elimination of the aftereffects of the Armenian Genocide,” it is possible to overcome these difficulties and achieve the restoration of the rights and interests of the Armenian people, and the elimination of the aftereffects of the Armenian Genocide.
