The date of 30 November is a historic day in the campaign for international recognition of the Armenian genocide. One of central European countries, Slovakia, recognized the fact of the Armenian genocide.

The resolution adopted by the Slovak parliamentarians stressed that the 1915 Armenian genocide in the Ottoman Turkey is an undeniable fact which Turkey must recognize on its way towards the EU accession as a crime against humanity.

Bratislava also demanded that official Ankara lift Armenia's blockade. The resolution was adopted by 70 votes.
