Belgian Senate President visits Armenian Genocide Memorial Complex

President of the Belgian Senate, Christine Defraigne, who is on an official visit to Armenia together with the delegation led by her, on Tuesday visited the Armenian Genocide Memorial Complex accompanied by Deputy Speaker of the Armenian National Assembly (NA) Hermine Naghdalyan and Head of Armenia-Belgium NA Friendship Group Shirak Torosyan.

Christine Defraigne and the delegation members laid a wreath at the memorial on behalf of the Belgian Senate. They also laid flowers at the eternal flame and observed a minute of silence in memory of the victims.

Apart from this, the guests visited the Armenian Genocide Museum-Institute, where they got familiarized with the documents witnessing about the Armenian Genocide, as well as left a note in the memory book.

Noting that Belgium is one of the first countries to recognize and condemn the Armenian Genocide, Christine Defraigne noted: “We continue our work in the Senate, attaching importance to the adoption of the law criminalizing the Armenian Genocide denial, which is necessary for the victims and successors of the Genocide perpetrators. We wish the Armenian and Turkish communities to come together one day.”
