Motion for Recognition of the Assyrian Genocide

Ladies and Gentlemen,

With this motion, the Union of Greek Pontian Youth of Attica wishes to underscore its support for the struggle of the Assyrian community for international recognition of its Genocide by the Ottoman, Young Turk and Kemalist regime.

The Genocide of the Assyrians is a historically documented event recognised by parliaments and professional bodies all over the world. Denial of this functions in an exculpatory way for the perpetrators and is considered the final stage of the Genocides of the indigenous Christian peoples of Anatolia by the Ottoman Turks.

  • We call upon the Hellenic government to recognise Genocide of the Assyrians by the Ottoman, Young Turk and Kemalist regime, as it did with the Genocide of the Armenians.
  • We demand of modern Turkey as the successor state to recognise the Genocide of the Assyrians demonstrating it respects democratic institutions and human rights as it desires to become a full member of the European Union.
  • We demand from Turkey that it conforms to the rules of International Law.
