A monument to the innocent victims of Assyrian Genocide was unveiled at the crossroads of Moskovyan and Nalbandyan streets in Yerevan.

According to Arsen Mikhaylov, the Chapter Secretary of the Assyrian Universal Alliance (AUA) in Armenia, Armenians, Assyrians and Greeks have not forgotten the pain of Genocide, “therefore we should demand that Turkey recognize the Armenian Genocide and make up for Genocide losses to these nations.”

Mr. Mikhaylov stressed that President Serzh Sargsyan assisted them in erecting the monument and RPA provided moral and financial support.

Thousands of Assyrians, Greeks and Arabs were massacred by the Young Turk regime during World War I.
