Greek President Issues Message on 107th Anniversary of Armenian Genocide

ATHENS – A constant vigilance and reaction against discrimination, violence, and hate toward our fellow humans is an obligation we all have, and a basic condition for the peaceful coexistence of peoples, Greek President Katerina Sakellaropoulou said on Orthodox Easter Sunday for the commemoration of 107 years since the Armenian Genocide in Asia Minor.

The genocide perpetrated by the Ottoman Empire “is a reminder of how important are the protection of life, the observance of human rights, and the integration of diversity in ethnicity, religion, and identity,” she noted.

In a tweet, Mitsotakis said of the systematic liquidation of 1.5 million people that “our primary concern should be a future of peace and mutual respect for all.”
