Kurdish and Alawite Intellectuals Travel to Armenia to Commemorate 99th Anniversary of Armenian Genocide
Social-Democratic Hunchakian Party (SDHP) Armenia Executive Board Chairman Narek Galstyan and several other Board members hosted a group of Kurdish and Alawite intellectual leaders, who are visiting Armenia to pay tribute to the Armenian Genocide victims on the 99th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide.
The Kurdish and Alawite intellectuals expressed their support for the Armenian people, and condemned Turkey’s official policy of Genocide denial, as reported by the SDHP. They also noted that the recognition and condemnation of the Armenian Genocide’s is the fight and objective of not only Armenians, but of all minorities living in Turkey.
In turn, Galstyan noted that the SDHP’s struggle is not aimed at the Turkish people, but rather against Turkey’s state policy, which continues to perpetuate the cycle of denial of the Armenian Genocide along with an anti-Armenian policy that has been in place for nearly a century.
