“Every war comes to an end after the last soldier is buried and the last criminal is punished. I will add that the war comes to an end, when the page of the past is turned and when the guilty repent,” said Vadim Rabinovich, President of the All-Ukrainian Jewish Congress and co-founder of the European Jewish Parliament. He said he hopes to contribute to the reconciliation of the two neighbors, and promised to spare no effort towards recognition of the Armenian Genocide. According to Armenian Diaspora Minister Hranush Hakobyan, “the consequences of the genocide are still there.” “The borders of the Republic of Armenia are closed, as a result of which we suffer a loss of billions of dollars. From the legal point of view, it’s high time for Turkey to answer for the closing the border and imposing an economic pressure on Armenia,” she said.
