Armenian Genocide 1914-1923: Statement by the Communist Party of Armenia

On the occasion of the 105th anniversary since the beginning of the Armenian Genocide, the Communist Party of Armenia issued the following statement:
Acknowledging,recognising and taking responsibility for the Genocide! Taking the necessary steps to move forward!
24th April 1915 marks the date upon which the Ottoman authorities in Istanbul (formerly Constantinople) began the roundup, arrest and forced deportation of leading Armenian figures from the city in what is widely regarded the beginning of a campaign of genocide against the then Ottoman Empire’s minority Armenian community…  A campaign that was allowed to continue largely without restraint over the following several years, the reverberations of which are still keenly felt over a century later.
