Iranian president Ahmadinejad is currently visiting Armenia for private meetings with the Armenian president Kocharyan, Ahmadinejad will hold a speech in the Armenian parliament.
Mahmoud Ahmadinejad will also visit the Armenian Genocide memorial and the institute museum of the Armenian Genocide in the capital of Armenia and will leave Armenia tomorrow.
Today, Ahmadinejad made a symbolic speech in wich he avoided the word "genocide" in the Yerevan State University.
“Iran’s stand on the events of early 20th century in the Ottoman Empire bases on two principles, the first principle is that each nation should remember its history but face the future and this must not lead to repetition of the past. Second, Iran will always be by Armenia’s side” he said.
- Why should Germany not remember its history?
- Why was this "infringements of human rights" not a genocide?
Ahmadinejad is a holocaust denier and claims that no Jew have been killed during WW2 by Nazi-Germany.
