Statement of the National Congress of Western Armenians on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the Sèvres Treaty

The provisions of the SèvresTreaty reflect the will of all parties, including Armenia and Turkey. That this expression of will only confirms the existing conviction about the events that occurred during the First World War and the reorganization of the International Community in the Middle East and the Caucasus. The Paris Peace Conference of 1919-1920 is proof of this. The Treaty of Sèvres reflects the aspirations of Armenians and is a faithful testimony of the rights of the Armenian population of the Ottoman Empire  and a beginning of just reparation for the loss of life and the damages suffered during the Genocide of 1915 and subsequent years. The arbitration award of the President of the United States of America, Woodrow Wilson, which established the international borders of the Republic of Armenia, is a legal instrument and is binding on the International Community and Turkey and must be complied with.
