Slovakian parliament recognizes `Armenian genocide'


The Slovakian parliament in its meeting on November 30 adopted a
decision to recognize the `Armenian genocide', Armenian news agencies
reported on Wednesday.
The issue was approved by 69 votes and with one parliament member
abstaining, according to the reports.
The Armenian society in Slovakia stated in October that the country's
parliament Speaker Pavol Hrusovsky is preparing a report on rejecting
Turkey's admission to the European Union (EU).
In his report the Slovakian Speaker will urge all EU legislative
bodies to put pressure on Turkey to recognize the `Armenian
genocide'.*
