/PanARMENIAN.Net/ There are 3 reasons for remembering the Armenian
Genocide of 1915, these being Germany's complicity, Turkey's desire
to join the EU and the situation in the South Caucasus, Secretary
General of the International Confederation of the Journalist Unions
Ashot Jazoian stated, Russland-Aktuell internet-portal reports. In his
words, in 1915 Germany was one of Turkey's closest allies. When the
Turkish attack against Russia failed a decision was taken to annihilate
the Christian Armenians, who were considered to be "Moscow's fifth
column". As Ashot Jazaian noted, to date the Armenian Genocide is the
topic of discussion for Brussels, Berlin and Moscow and the events
taken place 90 years ago demand legal revision.
