Syrian Parliament recognizes the Armenian Genocide

 ​https://en.armradio....2NO4PPsVNHjNiAI

The Syrian Parliament voted unanimously today to adopt a resolution recognizing the Armenian Genocide, SANA reports.
The Parliament’s Secretary Rami Saleh was earlier quoted by Ahval News as saying that “the history of the Ottoman Empire is full of massacres of various components of the Armenian, Syrian peoples and others.”
The website quoted the head of the Council’s Arab and Foreign Affairs and Expatriates Committee, MP Boutros Morjana as saying: “There is no doubt that the massacre certainly occurred and there was a genocide of the Armenian, Assyrian and Syriac peoples. It is time to recognize this genocide.”
The resolution was presented by the Syria-Armenia parliamentary friendship group.

 

 

PS: Syria is the second Muslim country after Lebanon to recognize the Genocide. I'm sure more will follow up.

The overwhelmingly symbolic move comes in the wake of a serious deteriorated situation in northwestern Syria, where Turkish and Syrian troops have been trading fire in the rebel-held province of Idlib.

The People’s Council of Syria, the nation’s unicameral parliament, has backed a resolution condemning the mass killings of Armenians by the Ottoman Turks during WWI as genocide.

Lawmakers have passed the motion unanimously, Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) reports.

They expressed sympathy for the Armenian people and recognised what they called the “systematic ethnic cleansing and massacre” of Armenians, Syrians and Assyrians by the Ottoman Empire, calling on the international community to condemn it as well.

Hours after the announcement, Turkey moved to condemn the decision, accusing Damascus of the persecution of its own citizens.

"This is a picture of hypocrisy on the part of a regime which has for years committed any kind of massacre on its own people... which has displaced millions and which is well known for its use of chemical weapons," the foreign ministry said in a statement.

According to the most widely-cited estimate, some 1.5 million Armenians were killed and many more deported from the Ottoman Empire in what many scholars say amounts to a genocide. So far, 32 countries have formally recognised what happened at the time as a genocide. Turkey acknowledges that mass killings of Armenians took place during World War I and in the following years, but disputes the death toll and rejects the term.

The resolution was passed at a time when Syrian and Turkish government forces have found themselves on a collision course in Idlib, the last Syrian militant enclave outside of Bashar al-Assad’s control, currently held by the jihadist terror group Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham, the local branch of al-Qaeda.

While troops loyal to President al-Assad and backed by Russia are advancing on the positions of terrorists, Turkey deployed its troops to Idlib, ostensibly to protect civilians and prevent an exodus of refugees.

Syria has accused Turkey of supporting and arming terrorists in Idlib and condemned its military presence in the province as illegal.

Turkey’s defence ministry said on Monday that it had shelled Syrian positions and killed 101 government troops in retaliation for the killing of five Turkish soldiers by Syrian army artillery fire. Last week, Ankara reported killing another 76 Syrian servicemen in response to an artillery strike that left five Turkish troops dead.

Russia, the main power broker in the region, blamed Turkey for the flare-up and accused it of failing to meet its commitments under the 2018 Sochi agreements, which envisaged a buffer zone in Idlib.

Syria's Parliament Recognizes Armenian Genocide

The move comes amid escalating violence between Turkey and Syria in and around Idlib

Feb 13, 2020 5:12 PM
 

Syria's parliament recognized the 1915-1917 murder of up to 1.5 million Armenians as genocide on Thursday. The move comes amid escalating violence between Turkey and Syria in and around Idlib.

"The parliament... condemns and recognises the genocide committed against the Armenians by the Ottoman state at the start of the twentieth century," the parliament said in a statement.

Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan said on Wednesday that his military would strike Syrian government forces by air or ground anywhere in Syria if another Turkish soldier was hurt, after 13 troops were killed by Syrian forces in just over a week.

Turkey will use force against rebel groups violating a ceasefire in Syria's northwest Idlib region, Turkish Defence Minister Hulusi Akar was quoted as saying on Thursday in an apparent response to Russian criticism.

Russia, which supports Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, has accused Turkey of flouting the agreements it made with Moscow on Syria and of aggravating the situation in Idlib. The Kremlin said Ankara had failed to neutralise militants there, as per a 2018 agreement to establish a de-escalation zone.

In an apparent response to the Russian criticism, Akar said Turkey was sending additional reinforcements to its positions in Idlib to ensure a ceasefire in the region is maintained and to "control" the area, according state-run Anadolu news agency.

"Force will be used against those violating the ceasefire, including radicals, and every measure will be taken," Akar said, referring to a Jan. 12 ceasefire Ankara says has been violated by Assad's forces. Ankara has deployed more than 1,000 troops to its military posts in Idlib since last week.

Ambassador: Those committing terrorist acts against Syria are grandchildren of people who committed Armenian Genocide
20:35, 13.02.2020

Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Syria to Armenia Mohammad Haj Ibrahim today said that the groups perpetrating terrorist acts against the Syrians are the grandchildren and descendants of the people who perpetrated the genocides against Armenians and other nations in the past.

He added that Turkey is currently showing aggression against Syria, and the terrorist groups in Idlib and other areas are supported by the Turkish government.

“The resolution on recognition of the Armenian Genocide that the Syrian parliament adopted today, confirms the Armenian Genocide that the Ottoman government perpetrated in the 20th century in the territory of Syria and Western Armenia. The resolution also condemns any attempt of denial of the crime and distortion of historical truth. This crime is one of the most brutal and repulsive crimes ever committed against humanity. The Syrian parliament also calls on the international community to recognize and condemn the Armenian Genocide,” Mohammad Haj Ibrahim said, adding that the Syrian government has deep respect for the Armenians of Syria and has always held events commemorating the victims in the Armenian-populated areas of Syria.

“In 2015, the parliamentary speaker attended the events dedicated to the Armenian Genocide Centennial. The Armenians who survived the genocide and moved to Syria have always been an integral part of Syrian society. Syria has built many churches eternalizing the memory of the victims of the Armenian Genocide. In addition, this year, the topic of the Armenian Genocide was incorporated in school textbooks,” Mohammad Haj Ibrahim concluded.

In a landmark move, MPs in Syria have voted unanimously to recognise and condemn the Armenian Genocide, ARMENPRESS has reported. The parliament in Damascus had previously paid homage to the memory of victims of the genocide but fell short of recognising the atrocities as such.

The resolution was tabled by the Syria-Armenia Parliamentary Friendship Commission. It recognises the genocide of Armenians and other representatives of the Syrian nation by the then Ottoman Empire in the early 20th century.

“Recognition is important, because only Lebanon from [all the] Arab countries has recognised the Armenian Genocide so far,” explained Syria’s Ambassador to Armenia, Mohammad Haj Ibrahim. “The successors of those who committed the genocide are perpetrating similar crimes against the Syrian people, through terrorists, today.” This was seen as a reference to Turkey, which has troops in northern Syria, and is home to millions of Syrian refugees forced to leave their homeland due to the ongoing civil war.

The Chair of the Syrian Parliament’s Arab and Foreign Affairs Committee, Boutros Morjana, insisted that, “It is time to recognise and condemn these inhumane actions and prevent their repetition.”

 

According to the Syrian Parliament’s Secretary, Rami Saleh, “The history of the Ottoman Empire is full of massacres of various components of the Armenians, Syrian peoples and others.” He described the resolution as “necessary”.

Armenia’s Ambassador to Syria, Arshak Poladian, told the Speaker of the Parliament last June that Syria has become a home for Armenians, in which they have lived successful lives and integrated into Syrian society.

The Armenian Genocide is said to have taken place between 1915 and 1923, with the massacre and forced deportation of Armenians by the Ottoman Empire. However, the facts of the matter have been disputed over the years, and several countries refuse to acknowledge that what happened was “genocide”.

At the time of writing, however, 32 countries have formally recognised the Armenian Genocide, while others, including Britain, Iran and Australia, boast political parties or municipalities which have recognised the genocide independently from their government.

Lebanon and Syria were the first countries in the Middle East to recognise the genocide. Two close neighbours of Armenia — Azerbaijan and Turkey — have formally denied its historical accuracy. Indeed, both have threatened economic and diplomatic consequences for countries which choose to recognise the genocide.

Tensions are currently running high between Turkey and Syria as fighting in Idlib, in north-western Syria, intensifies.

Syrian gov’t passes resolution condemning the genocide of Armenians, Assyrians, Syriacs
 

BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:15 P.M.) – The Syrian Parliament unanimously adopted a resolution on Thursday that called for the recognition and condemnation of the genocide of Armenians, Assyrians, and Syriacs that took place in the early part of the 20th Century.

“The Syrian Parliament adopts a resolution condemning and recognizing the crime of genocide committed against the Armenians by the Ottoman Empire at the beginning of the 20th Century,” the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) reported on Thursday.

In the officially statement, however, the genocide of Assyrians and Syriacs was also mentioned in the text.

The Syrian government previously announced their recognition of the Armenian Genocide a few years ago when a delegation from Yerevan visited Damascus.

However, this latest move comes from the Syrian Parliament, which issued a statement along with the resolution.

In the past, Syria allowed the recognition of the genocide inside the country, but the government did not officially recognize it due to ties with Ankara.

Armenia hails Syrian Parliament Resolution recognizing the Genocide
 
 

Armenia has highly appreciated the adoption of the Resolution on the recognition and condemnation of the Armenian people by the People’s Council of the Arab Republic of Syria.

“The Syrian people, who witnessed the atrocities against the Armenian people, were among the first to extend a helping hand to the victims of the genocide. Thousands of survivors reclaimed their new homeland in Syria by forming one of the richest Armenian communities and contributing to the development of the country,” the statement continued.

The Foreign Ministry said “the resolution is a vivid testimony to the centuries-old friendship and mutual sympathy of the Armenian and Syrian peoples.

“It is a significant contribution to restoring historical justice and preventing genocides,” it concluded.

World / Politics Syria parliament recognizes 1915-1917 Armenian genocide as tensions with Turkey surge

AFP-JIJI

DAMASCUS – Syria’s parliament on Thursday recognized the 1915-1917 killings of up to 1.5 million Armenians as genocide, as tensions run high with Turkey after deadly clashes in northwest Syria.

“The parliament … condemns and recognizes the genocide committed against the Armenians by the Ottoman state at the start of the twentieth century,” the legislature said in a statement.

 

 

 

The Armenians seek international recognition that the mass killings of their people under the Ottoman Empire from 1915 to 1917 amounted to genocide. They say 1.5 million died.

Turkey strongly rejects the accusation and says both Armenians and Turks died as a result of World War I. It puts the death toll in the hundreds of thousands.

The Syrian parliament’s latest move comes after weeks of tensions between Ankara and Damascus over deadly clashes between their forces in northwest Syria that Ankara says has killed 14 of its soldiers.

Russia-backed Syrian government forces have since December upped their deadly bombardment of the last major bastion of opposition in northwest Syria, where Ankara supports the rebels and has deployed troops.

The offensive on the jihadist-dominated bastion of Idlib has also forced 700,000 people from their homes toward the closed Turkish border, the United Nations says.

Turkey, which already hosts more than 3 million refugees, fears a massive fresh influx from Syria and has kept its border closed to newly displaced people in Idlib.

It has sent reinforcements to the war-torn-country in recent weeks, a move that Damascus says serves to protect rebels and halt its Idlib advance.

“We are currently living through a Turkish aggression that relies on the same hateful Ottoman thinking” as “the crimes carried out by Erdogan’s forefathers against the Armenian people,” Parliament Speaker Hammouda Sabbagh said.

Beyond Idlib, Turkey and its proxies have conducted three operations in Syria against both the Islamic State group and Kurdish fighters it views as “terrorists.

After the last incursion, Turkey set up a “safe zone” in a 120-km (70-mile) long strip inside Syrian territory along its southern border.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Wednesday threatened to strike Syrian government forces “everywhere” if its soldiers come under renewed attack.

Damascus hit back that he was “disconnected from reality.”

Clashes between Armenians and Turks had already started at the end of the 19th century, costing between 100,000 and 300,000 Armenian lives between 1895 and 1896, according to Armenian sources.

That came as growing nationalist sentiments in the Balkans and elsewhere threatened Ottoman authority, particularly since Greek independence in 1830.

Turkey says the Armenians collaborated with the Russian enemy during World War I, and accuses them of killing tens of thousands of Turks.

In 1915, thousands of Armenians suspected of being hostile to Ottoman rule were rounded up and a special law a month later authorized deportations “for reasons of internal security.”

Many Armenians were forced into exile in the Syrian desert and a large number were killed, either on the way to detention camps or after they arrived.

Some were burned to death, others were drowned, poisoned or died from disease, according to foreign diplomats and intelligence services at the time.

The eastern Syrian region of Deir Ezzor lies on the desert route taken by thousands of Armenians during their forced exile by the Ottoman empire.

A genocide memorial in the area contained some of the remains of the victims and served as a pilgrimage site for Syria’s Armenians before it was bombed by jihadis in 2014.

In 2010, then-Armenian President Serzh Sarkisian visited the site, which also served as a church, and said it was to Armenians what Auschwitz is to the Jews.

Turkey’s defeat in the First World War led to the creation of an independent Armenian state in 1918.

Before the start of Syria’s civil war in 2011 with the repression of anti-government protests, the country counted tens of thousands of Armenians.

Second city Aleppo was once home to the largest contingent: 150,000 out of 350,000 Syrian Armenians, according to Syria specialist Fabrice Balanche.

But when the government recaptured Aleppo from rebels in late 2016, just 10,000 were left there. Thousands had fled to Armenia, neighboring Lebanon or even farther afield to the United States, Canada, and Europe.

Parliaments in nearly 30 countries have passed laws, resolutions or motions recognising the Armenian genocide.

The U.S. Congress in December recognized the mass killings as genocide, angering Turkey. President Donald Trump’s administration said it did not agree.

In a message to Assad Catholicos Karekin II hails Armenian Genocide recognition
 
 

His Holiness Karekin II, Supreme Patriarch and Catholicos of All Armenians, has sent a letter to President of the Syrian Arab Republic Bashar al-Assad to thank him on behalf of the Armenian people for the unanimous adoption by the Syrian People’s Council of a resolution recognizing and condemning the Armenian Genocide by the Syrian People’s Council.

“The condemnation of crimes against humanity and negation of denial is a firm guarantee that new genocides and crimes against religious and ethnic discrimination can be prevented and a peaceful world can be built,” His Holiness said in the letter.

“The Syrian people today reaffirmed the commitment and determination of their ancestors, who gave shelter to the children of our nation exiled during the difficult years of the Armenian Genocide. Decades ago in the wilderness of Deir ez-Zor, during the presidency of your well-known father, Hafez al-Assad, the construction of the Holy Martyrs Church became another record of the Syrian authorities’ position on the Armenian Genocide,” the Catholicos added.

“We have repeatedly witnessed the undeserved kindness and attention of you and your people towards our people, vivid expressions of which are the Armenian sanctuaries, cultural and educational institutions, numerous testimonies of the Syrian-Armenian community’s remarkable life,” reads the letter of His Holiness.

His Holiness, expressing his support to the pious people of Syria, wished that the desired peace and tranquility in the country would be restored and the dreams of the bright life of the brotherly people overcoming difficulties come true.

Catholicos Aram I welcomes Syrian parliament’s recognition of Armenian Genocide

His Holiness Aram I, Catholicos of the Great House of Cilicia, has sent a letter to Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad welcoming the unanimous adoption of a resolution recognizing and condemning the Armenian Genocide by the People’s Council of Syria on Thursday.

“We are confident that you and your late father played an important role in recognizing and condemning the genocide over the past years. On this occasion, we would also like to emphasize that the Syrian people, with its constituent elements, its state and all structures, recognized the Armenian Genocide 100 years ago when it welcomed the children of the Armenian Genocide victims on its land,” he said.

“You recognized the Armenian Genocide when the Syrian people shared their bread and water with Armenians who fled the genocide, which is why our people of the Diaspora welcome this decision of the Syrian parliament with special warmth.

"We would like to express our highest appreciation to the Syrian parliament, Your Highness and the people of Syria, wishing you full peace and wellbeing,” the letter reads.

Catholicos Aram I has also addressed a similar letter to the speaker of the People’s Council of Syria.
