NEW YORK- The Cyprus Action Network of America (CANA) stands with
Armenians around the world – in commemorating April 24, the
international day of remembrance for the Armenian Genocide initiated by the Ottoman  Turkish Empire and continued into the nationalist era of Kemalist
Turkey against the Armenian people.

Henry Morgenthau, the U.S. Ambassador to the Ottoman Empire at the time
of the atrocities wrote–"I am confident that the whole history of
the human race contains no such horrible episode as this. The great
massacres and persecutions of the past seem almost insignificant when
compared with the sufferings of the Armenian race in 1915."

This genocidal campaign, perpetrated by Turkey, resulted in the murder
of the ancient civilizations of Armenians, Assyrians, Pontian Hellenes
and Hellenes of Asia Minor. By 1923, the Armenian population in the
entire land mass of Asia Minor and historic West Armenia was expunged of
its native population of Armenians

CANA joins with the Armenian people in solemn remembrance of the
Armenian Genocide of 1915, and reaffirms a commitment by Hellenic-Americans
of conscience who, for many years, remain determined, to secure full
recognition and justice for Turkey's crimes.

The Armenian Genocide has been formally acknowledged by the Hellenic
Republic and the Republic of Cyprus   and by 40 U.S. States and 11 NATO
