Turkey should “apologize for Pontus Greeks Genocide,” says the President

Turkey should apologize for the Genocide of Pontus Greeks, President of the Hellenic Republic, Prokopis Pavlopoulos said on Thursday on the occasion of the celebration of the Dormition of Virgin Mary in Panagia Soumela.

“Greeks should unite to achieve two goals, promote the recognition of the genocide of Greeks from Pontus, the Black Sea area, “as a stain of barbarity forever impressed in human memory” and “oblige the perpetrators to express, at the very least, a sincere and retroactive apology, disowning the up to now immoral tactic of ruthless violation of generally acceptable and irrefutable historical proof,”Pavlopoulos said.

This will provide a lesson through memory to deter forevermore “such brutal and barbaric actions” that hit at the core of human values and undermine human progress, the President noted.

Pavlopoulos was visiting the Church of Panagia Soumela in North Greece, that is a symbol of the faith of Pontus Greeks.
