Spanish city of Ontinyent recognizes Armenian Genocide

Diario Armenia reports that the town hall of Ontinyent condemned the unprecedented crime committed against humanity by the Ottoman Empire and the current Turkish government’s policy of denial.

Two of the three political parties represented in the city council voted in favor, and the People’s Party of the Valencian Community cast abstinence votes during the vote for the petition submitted by Ararat Armenian Association. The authorities of Ontinyent called on Turkey and particularly the Spanish government to recognize the Armenian Genocide.

Five of Spain’s autonomous communities Aragon, Balearic Islands, Catalonia, Navarra and the Basque Country have recognized the Armenian Genocide to date.
