YEREVAN, MAY 29, ARMENPRESS: During the coming year suggestion about recognizing Armenian genocide will be presented to Spanish Parliament. Chief of Armenian national committee of Barcelona Armen Siruyan told Armenpress about this.
"We must not hurry in this issue. Maybe the suggestion will be presented during a year as we want the society and deputies to know more about this issue" mentioned Siruyan.
In his words the suggestion will be presented by Party "Union, Progress and Democracy" (UPyD) that is going to raise issues concerning problems of Armenians in Spain.
What about the refusal of Spanish Parliament's lower chamber's international affairs committee to recognize Armenian genocide on May 24 Siruyan mentioned that it had been expression of anti propaganda. "The suggestion was made by Basques; they are minority and use problems of Armenians for their interests. They did apply neither to Armenian committee nor to Armenians. Their aim is to be independent from Spain so in that purpose show Armenians as an example" said Siruyan.
In Siruyan's words it is obvious that each resolution presented by Basques will fail in a short period.
