15 April 2019, 12:36 - NovostiNK
The Armenian Genocide issue has been included in the Syrian history textbooks at the initiative of Syrian Armenian MP Nora Arissian.

As a result of discussions with the country’s Center for Educational Programs Development, the topic has been included in the new history textbooks for 2019-2020 academic year, Rusarminfo reports.

The lawmaker raised the issue in the Syrian parliament back in September 2017.

The events of the early 20th century are featured in the political changes section of the textbooks. They will refer to the Turkish policy against Armenians, the 1915 Armenian Genocide, as well as the forced deportation of Armenians to Syria.

The textbooks are set to feature the materials of Syrian historians about the tragic events of the 20th century.
