‘Origins: Discovery’ author urges Australia PM to acknowledge Genocide
Len Wicks, an Australian citizen working for the UN and the author of ‘Origins: Discovery’ addressed a letter to the new Australian PM Malcolm Turnbull with a request to acknowledge the Genocide of Armenians, Assyrians and Greeks committed in the Ottoman Empire, News.am reports.
In his letter, Wicks noted that he had already addressed the MPs concerning the issue. Moreover, the ex-PM also made a statement on recognizing the Armenian Genocide in 2013, but failed to have the courage to raise the issue during his tenure as Prime Minister.
Wicks took part in the Armenian Genocide centennial events in Yerevan, he said he was ashamed “that Australia and New Zealand failed to send at least a representative that day, but instead went to be with Turkey”
