Park dedicated to Armenian Genocide Opens in Cyprus


PAPHOS, Cyprus (Armenpress) — A park dedicated to the memory of the Armenian Genocide victims was opened in the city of Paphos, the Office of Armenian lawmaker of Cypriot parliament Vardges Mahtesyan said.

“The idea existed in early 2016. It was adopted unanimously by the Paphos City Hall Council. The public green space located at the corner of the two streets will honor the 1.5 million innocent victims of the 1915 Armenian Genocide,” the Office said.
