THAT MATTER

ARTSAKH

Karabakh has always been an integral part of Armenia. The annexation of Karabakh to Azerbaijan was a result of arbitrary machinations by Stalin in the early 1920s and the people of Karabakh have never accepted that arrangement. During Soviet rule, at every opportunity, and most recently in 1988, the majority of the population of Karabakh had peacefully raised their quest for reunification with Armenia; Azerbaijan responded by violence not only in Karabakh, but all over Azerbaijan. In Karabakh, Armenians defended themselves and in 1991, declared the formation of the Mountainous Karabakh Republic. A just and lasting resolution of the Karabakh conflict should guarantee security and viability for Karabakh and Armenia.

The European Armenian Federation for Justice and Democracy has always defended the right of the people of the Republic of Mountainous Karabakh (MKR) to determine their own destiny. 

ARMENIAN GENOCIDE

Since its inception in 2002 the European Armenian Federation for Justice and Democracy (or EAFJD) has been advocating for the condemnation and recognition of the Armenian Genocide by various European states and institutions. Through its continuous active advocacy of more than a decade the Federation prepared a fertile soil and significantly contributed to the adoption of the resolution on the centenary of the Genocide by the European Parliament (EP) on 15. April, 2015.

With this resolution the European Parliament officially recognizes and condemns the Armenian Genocide and “in the spirit of European solidarity and justice … pays tribute to the memory of 1,5 million innocent Armenian victims, who perished in the Ottoman Empire”. The European Parliament also calls on Turkey to come to terms with its past, fulfil its obligations to the protection of Armenian cultural heritage in the country and pave a way for a genuine reconciliation. In its annual report on human rights adopted in March 2015, the EP also encourages the EU Member states and institutions to contribute further to the recognition of the Armenian Genocide…
