President Serzh Sargsyan’s Address on the Commemoration of the 95th Anniversary of the Armenian Genocide
Dear Compatriots: Today is April 24. Ninety-five years ago on this day, a state-devised plan unleashed a crime whose viciousness, magnitude, or consequences are unparalleled not only in the history of the Armenian nation but also in the history of the world. The plan of extermination of the Armenians was implemented by the Ottoman Empire’s state machine through all its structures, which were acting upon exact instructions. April 24, 1915 became a dividing line: the millennia long journey...

For us – Armenians – Wilson is not...
Remarks by President Serzh Sargsyan in Deir ez Zor
Your Eminencies, Ladies and Gentlemen, I am here today since I could not but be here. It is the greatest grief of my nation that has brought me here, the grief of the first genocide of the 20th century and the greatest disgrace of the civilized humanity. Up to this moment, in the 21st century, the stigma of that disgrace still remains on the foreheads of all those who have turned the denial of the evident facts into their policy, turned it into their bargaining chip and into their...
Speech by President Serzh Sargsyan in the Chatham House British Royal Institute of International Affairs
Thank you, Mr. Robertson. It is my pleasure to visit with this reputable institution, the Chatham House, for the first time. When I was invited to speak here, I was not aware that the discussion would be chaired by my old friend and “ally in arms,” Sir Robertson. Hence, it is more of a pleasure for me to participate in this discussion. Why ‘friends in arms’? Because we have travelled a long path with Lord Robertson; we have even agreed upon and organized the engagement of Armenian...
