"America's stand against genocide represents a clear moral imperative.

Political considerations - whether Turkish threats, prospects for
Turkey-Armenia dialogue, or in any other form - should never stand in
the way of America's willingness to condemn the Armenian Genocide, or
any genocide, and to stand up for the truth, ANCA Executive Director
Aram Hamparian said in a statement regarding upcoming April 24th US
presidential statement marking Armenian Genocide.

"As President Obama so appropriately stated at the Holocaust
Commemoration in the Capitol Rotunda earlier today, "We have the
opportunity... to commit ourselves to resisting injustice, intolerance
and indifference in whatever forms they may take, whether confronting
those who tells lies about history or doing everything we can to
prevent and end atrocities like those that took place in Rwanda,
those taking place in Darfur."

We look forward to President Obama's lifting America's response to the
Armenian Genocide - and all genocides - to the level of American values
by honoring his pledge to fully and properly condemn and commemorate
this crime against all humanity," Aram Hamparian declared.
