Gennimata on Pontian Genocide: Day of Remembrance, Honour and Respect

ATHENS – Opposition Movement for Change (KINAL) leader Fofi Gennimata, in a message for the Greek Pontian Genocide Remembrance Day on Wednesday, said that May 19 was a day of remembrance, honour and respect for the Pontian Greeks that "were murdered or uprooted in the most violent way from their lands".

In a post on social media, Gennimata also said that in 1994, PASOK had tabled and achieved the recognition of the Pontian Genocide by the Greek parliament, which would be celebrated on May 19 every year. "We continue on the same path and strive for the international recognition of the genocide. The internationalisation of the issue is today more timely than ever, after the recognition of the Armenian Genocide by US President Jo Biden. We will not stop until the historic truth is restored and Turkey admits its crimes and ask for forgiveness from the peoples that suffered".
