His Eminence Archbishop Anoushavan Tanielian, Prelate of the Eastern Prelacy of the Armenian Apostolic Church, saluted the courageous decision of President Biden to declare the 1915 massacres of 1.5 million Armenians a Genocide and thanked him on behalf of the community and parishes he presides over in the Eastern United States.

“History was made today,” Archbishop Anoushavan said. “In these times of turmoil and despair, President Biden has demonstrated that the first test of leadership is to stand up for justice and the values that make America the land of the free and the home of the brave. By becoming the first sitting U.S. President to recognize the Armenian Genocide, he has taken a huge step towards making the world a safer place, living up to the principles upon which the Founding Fathers built this wonderful country that has been a home away from home for millions of Armenians after the Genocide.”
