By ANC-AU | Wednesday, 01 December 2021



SYDNEY: SBS (Special Broadcasting Service) Armenian Radio's Executive Producer, Vahe Kateb interviewed Executive Director of the Armenian National Committee of Australia (ANC-AU), Haig Kayserian, after the Federal Parliament’s House of Representatives unanimously debated in favour of a motion calling on the Australian Government to recognise the Armenian, Assyrian, and Greek Genocides.

This was the first legislative victory of the the Joint Justice Initiative, which was formed by the public affairs representative organisations of the Armenian-Australian, Assyrian-Australian and Greek-Australian communities to advocate for national recognition of the genocides suffered by their ancestors.

Kateb and Kayserian also discussed the ANC-AU's meetings with the Russian and Iranian Ambassadors regarding developments in Armenia and Artsakh, where Azerbaijan continues its encroachment into sovereign Armenian territories.
