Every nation has the right to live, the right to develop and the right to have a future.
Armenians have also the right to live, develop and have a future, Armenians of Western Armenia, Armenians living in the Middle East, who, incidentally, earned those rights by rich civilization past, creative present and by the light of faith towards future.
Note that the Armenians living in the Middle East region re-settled because of genocide towards Armenians by three Turkish governments in the 1894-1923, as a result of the planned criminal policy, which was condemned on May 24, 1915 by Great Britain, Russia and France, describing it as a “crime against humanity”.
As mentioned above, the rights of Armenians in the cradle of homeland (Western Armenia) was recognized and approved by international community in the 1920s, but they were not implemented. During that period it was the great shortcoming of the international community, which is dictated by the narrow interests of some political-military calculations. But it is unforgivable to repeat the same mistake with the same consequences today, in this difficult historical period of the region’s countries and peoples, taking into account the fact that for sustainable peace and peaceful cooperation it is necessary to implement and find a final solution to a number of difficult issues, including The Armenian Issue
Therefore, for solving the problems of Armenians living abroad, particularly in the Middle East and Syrian Armenians, we suggest:
-implement and carry out the right of Armenians of Western Armenia to return to their cradle of homeland, with ensuring all legal and political obligations and rights, including the establishment of an independent state, taking into account the US 28th President Woodrow Wilson’ Arbitral Award in 1920 and the allocated space to Armenia according to this arbitral award, which is occupied till now.
-implement and carry out the immediate granting of independence to Cilicia based on the Declaration of Cilicia Independence adopted on August 4, 1920 and UN Declaration on “Granting of Independence to Colonial Countries”, adopted in 1968.
-implement and carry out demilitarization of the territory of Western Armenia and Cilician Armenia, taking into consideration:
-The decision of the National Council of Western Armenia and the Government-in-Exile of Western Armenia on “creation of Armenians of Western Armenia and Western Armenia Permanent, Armed and positive neutrality policy”, adopted on 29 March, 2011
-and the appeal to UN Security Council Members by the National Council of Western Armenia and the Government-in-Exile of Western Armenia, where it is suggested to implement and carry out the US 28th President Woodrow Wilson’ Arbitral Award and demilitarization of the territory of Western Armenia and Cilician Armenia, based on the resolution of the National Council of Western Armenia and the Government-in-Exile of Western Armenia on neutrality.
