"We have no moral right to forget the Armenian Genocide victims and
bury in oblivion the shocking facts of the past, " President of Serbia
Tomislav Nikolic said at the Armenian Genocide Memorial in Yerevan.

Nikolic condemned the denial or distortion of the historical truth
saying to forget that tragedy means not to honor the memory of the
victims. "We are living in the time when people call the thing by their
proper names depending on their benefits. We have come here today well
aware of the undisputable truth and the consequences of that tragedy
for the humanity. Such tragedy should never happen again," he said.

"In the century when Genocide is used in favor of political interests
and double standards are meanly applied, when the victims of Genocides
and pogroms are presented as criminals, we - representatives of the
Serbian people that suffered huge losses during all the wars of the
last period - could not but come here today," Nikolic said.
