The Lebanese Chamber of Deputies
Feeling the pains and suffering that the Lebanese-Armenian people lived through between 1915 and 1923, similar to the suffering of the Lebanese people and the peoples of the region, which continues until today, resulting from the organized extermination acts against our peoples at the hands of the colonizer in the beginning of the century.
Whereas the 24th day of April of each year constitutes an occasion to mark this catastrophe embodied by the massacres committed against the Armenian people.
The Chamber of Deputies calls upon the people of Lebanon to declare their solidarity with the Armenian people on this day.
