PanARMENIAN.Net - A workshop on the Armenian Genocide will be held at the University of Potsdam in Germany on September 14-17.

Four institutions - the University of Michigan (the United States), Lepsiushaus Potsdam (Potsdam, Germany), the USC Institute of Armenian Studies (Los Angeles, U.S.) and the Sabanc University (Istanbul, Turkey) - will participate in the 4-day event.

Titled "Workshop on Turkish-Armenian Scholarships (WATS) 2017 - European Approaches to the Armenian Genocide", the event seeks to shed light on the murder of 1.5 million Armenians in the Ottoman Empire between 1915-1923.

Some three dozen countries, hundreds of regional government bodies and international organizations have so far recognized the Armenian Genocide. Turkey denies to this day.

Germany took an important step by recognizing the Armenian Genocide, the West European country's ambassador to Armenia Matthias Kiesler said on Thursday, September 7.

At a meeting with Armenian parliament speaker Ara Babloyan in Yerevan, the ambassador said he can feel the Armenian people's attitude to Germany's decision to acknowledge and condemn the killings of 1.5 million Armenians in the Ottoman Empire.

Some three dozen states, hundreds of regional government bodies and international organizations have so far recognized the Genocide. Turkey denies to this day.

Also, the envoy weighed in on the conflict in Nagorno Karabakh , adding that Germany rules out any military settlement option.

The ambassador, in addition, briefed Babloyan on his own observations concerning reforms carried out in Armenia in the past several years, hailing the country's progress compared to other post-Soviet states.
