Tsipras: Today We honour the Memory of the Victims of the Genocide

ATHENS – "This year marks 101 years since the Pontian Genocide, one of the most tragic and heinous moments in human history, which led to the death and uprooting from their ancestral homes of an important part of Hellenism with a great history, which had fought for its survival for thousands of years," main opposition SYRIZA leader Alexis Tsipras said in a statement posted on social media platforms on Tuesday.

Tsipras stated that "today we honour the memory of the victims of the Genocide, while acknowledging the decisive contribution of the Pontians who settled in Greece, to the social, economic, political and cultural recovery of the country."

The leader of the main opposition noted that "recognising the historical truth and preserving historical memory is a struggle not only for the past, but especially for the present and the future."
