Israel's Knesset to consider "Armenian genocide" resolutions in October
Discussion of two resolutions on the so-called "Armenian genocide" in Israeli parliament (Knesset), is postponed until October after parliamentary recess, coordinator of Jerusalem Armenian Cause (Hay Dat) group Hagop Sevan told Armenian News-NEWS.am.
Asked about the actions that Armenian community of Israel and Hay Dat intend to carry out, Sevan noted a lot of work had been done.
"There were meetings, discussions, agreement was reached. For obvious reasons, I would not like to disclose the details right now," he added.
The issue on recognition of the so-called "Armenian genocide" was introduced in the Knesset Committee on Education, Culture and Sport in May this year by "leftist" party "Meretz" with the support of the "Likud" party, led by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Before sending it to the Commission on Education, Culture and Sports MPs approved the decision to continue the discussion.
