At today's press-conference Armenia's Foreign Minister Edward
Nalbandyan said Armenia didn't see any reasons to abandon the process
of international recognition of issue of Genocide. This statement was
made as journalists mentioned that foreign media outlets had reported
such suggestions after Armenian-Turkish protocols signing ceremony
in Zurich.

According to Mr. Nalbandyan, anything unsaid in a couple of articles
among wide circulation cannot show any trends. He stressed that
Armenian leadership had repeatedly stated would never question Genocide
and importance of its recognition.

"Armenian Genocide recognition is a matter that concerns not only
Armenian people but all humanity in order that such crimes could
never happen again," said Armenian FM adding that Armenia always
welcomes Genocide recognition initiated in other countries. He also
mentioned that more than 20 states have officially characterized
and recognized mass killings and deportations of Armenians in the
Ottoman Empire a Genocide. Moreover 3 states had recognized Armenian
Genocide long before Armenia's sovereignty. Besides, two members of the
U.S. Senate have recently introduced legislation calling on President
Barack Obama to officially term the 1915-1918 mass killings and
deportations of Armenians in the Ottoman Empire a Genocide. Senators
Robert Menendez and John Ensign who drafted the resolution urge to
"accurately characterize the systematic and deliberate annihilation
of 1,500,000 Armenians as genocide."
