AHI Applauds Biden for Upholding Human Rights with Armenian Genocide Declaration

WASHINGTON, DC – The American Hellenic Institute (AHI) applauds President Joseph Biden, Jr. for recognizing the Armenian Genocide with a declaration stating the systematic killing of 1.5 million Armenians by the Ottoman Empire was an act of genocide.

“We congratulate the Armenian-American community who has endeavored for decades to reach this landmark moment,” AHI President Nick Larigakis said. “President Biden’s action, together with the passage of congressional resolutions by the U.S. House of Representatives and U.S. Senate, signify an end to America’s foreign policy silence on the Armenian Genocide, a crime against humanity. Today is a banner day for upholding justice, human rights, and the rule of law.”

In March, AHI applauded Senate Foreign Relations Chairman Robert Menendez’s initiative to send a letter to President Biden requesting the Biden administration to join Congress in recognizing the Armenian Genocide. Thirty-nine Senators signed-on to the letter.

Calling on the United States to recognize the Armenian Genocide has been a staple of annual AHI’s policy statements.
