No: 71, 25 April 2024, Regarding the Resolution Adopted by the Chamber of Deputies of Chile on the Events of 1915

Republic Of Türkiye Ministry Of Foreign Affairs 25.04.2024

The resolution adopted yesterday (24 April) by the Chamber of Deputies of Chile recognizing the events of 1915 as "genocide" is null and void.

Parliaments have no authority to interpret or pass a judgement on history.

This resolution also contravenes the 1948 UN Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide, which states that the crime of genocide can only be ruled by a competent court.
