YEREVAN (Combined Sources)—Recognition of the Armenian Genocide by Turkey will raise its dignity, rather than humiliate it, said Turkish human rights activist Ragib Zarakolu Tuesday. He was honored by the National Library for his contribution to condemning the Armenian Genocide and crimes against humanity, reported ArmRadio.


“The Armenian Genocide fits into the term ‘genocide’ mentioned in all international documents. It is beyond question,” Zarakolu told reporters in Yerevan.


Armenian National Library director Davit Sargsyan honored the Turkish author by presenting the “Hakob Meghapart” medal for his contributions.
