ArmInfo. The subsequent 7th session of the World Association of Bulgarians on October 15-16 in Varna passed a declaration condemning the Armenian Genocide in Ottoman Turkey in early 20th century.

According to the Foreign Ministry press-office, the declaration  defines it as a crime against humanity, a historical truth that  claimed 1 million 650 thousand lives.
