ANCC thanks Bolivian government for speaking the truth on Armenian Genocide


Ottawa (Feb. 5) – A delegation of the ANCC (Armenian National Committee of Canada) had the opportunity to personally thank Bolivian Ambassador to Canada for his government’s recent adoption of a strongly worded Armenian Genocide legislation.

It was important for the ANCC delegation to discuss with H.E. Edgar Torrez Mosqueira Ambassador and First Secretary Claudia Rocabado Mrden, who reiterated the importance for President Evo Morales and the Bolivian government to condemn the genocide and all human rights atrocities. The two parties exchanged on similarities (both countries being landlocked, for example) and between the two countries and insisted on establishing a more lasting and active friendship between the Armenian Canadian community, Armenia and Bolivia.

Before leaving, Ambassador Torrez insisted that he would remind President Morales of the Armenian government’s invitation to attend the 100th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide in Armenia.
