Washington, D.C. – Nevada Senator Reid today made the following statement in recognition of the 95th Commemoration of Armenian Genocide.
“In recognition of the 95th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide, I honor the memories of the more than 1.5 million men, women and children who perished in this unthinkable genocide.
“The time has come for our government to identify these organized acts of mass violence for what they really were – genocide. In my ongoing efforts to encourage our country to recognize the genocide, I have co-sponsored the Armenian Genocide resolutions in the last three Congresses.
“I believe that paying tribute to those affected by this tragedy is a necessary step to combat future forms of violence and intolerance. I am glad Nevada is included among the 40 states that have recognized the Armenian Genocide, and hope our entire government soon follows.”
