We highly respect Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan for his far-sighted decision to start a dialogue with Turkey, Ambassador of Poland to Armenia Zdzislaw Raczynski told journalists while visiting the Armenian Genocide Memorial Complex in Yerevan.
He believes that even though frozen for the moment, this dialogue will be restarted sooner or later.
Raczynski said that the events that took place in early XX century were a tragedy but only dialogue and reconciliation can help to solve problems and to establish peace and stability in the region.
The Polish Ambassador refrained from commenting on Turkish Prime Minister Recep Erdogan's last statement.
At the April 23 meeting of the Turkish Parliament, Erdogan offered condolences to the descendants of the Armenian Genocide victims but qualified the Genocide as events in early XX century.
Official Ankara keeps denying the 1915-1923 Armenian Genocide in the Ottoman Empire that annihilated 1.5 million Armenians. Meanwhile, the fact of the Armenian Genocide has been recognized by 44 out of the 51 States of the USA, as well as by 29 countries, including Canada, Argentina, Switzerland, Russia, Belgium, France, Poland, Slovakia, the Netherlands, Uruguay, Greece, Cyprus, Vatican, Sweden.
