PanARMENIAN.Net - On November 1, members of the delegation of the
European Parliament led by Milan Cabrnoch, Co-Chair of Armenia-EU
parliamentary cooperation committee, visited Tsitsernakaberd and laid
flowers at the 1915 Armenian Genocide Memorial to honor the memory
of the 1.5 million innocent victims.

The MEPs also took a tour to the Genocide Museum, where they left
a note in the Commemoration Book, saying "This is one of the most
tragic pages of the history of the Armenian people. We hope that it
will never be repeated again."

"I am in Armenia for the first time and I am impressed to be in the
Genocide Museum. Genocide awareness is very important for prevention
of future crimes against humanity," Mr. Cabrnoch told journalists.

"In the European Parliament, we have adopted two declarations on the
Armenian Genocide. I believe that we have no right to forget our past,
our history; otherwise we won't have future," added MEP Slavi Binev,
reported the press office of the Armenian National Assembly.
