Recognising the massacre of Armenians as genocide

The Christian Conference of Asia (CCA) joins with millions of Armenians all over the world, especially the Armenian diaspora scattered across Asia, who welcomed the US government’s decision to recognise the massacre of about 1.5 million Armenians in 1915 as genocide.
