On the occasion of the 25th anniversary of European Parliament’s decision on June 18, 1987
Armen Ts. Maruqyan
The official international organizations’ assessments of the crime have a great importance for the Armenian Genocide international recognition. The cases of the resolution “concerning the issue of the Armenian question” which have been adopted as a result of discussions in European council in 1980 are very significant in this regard. The adopted resolution concerning Armenian Genocide was the result of the unsystematic and desperate struggle of the Armenian diaspora’s different structures and certain individuals.
Under the circumstances of independent statehood, when Armenia is an international entity, full member of UNO and European Council, the previous discussions about the Armenian Genocide recognition and the adopted resolution should be used as precedent by the Armenian diplomacy to raise the question of the Armenian Genocide condemnation and its consequences’ overcoming in other international structures.
