Different activities organized by our Diocese concerning the Armenian Genocide:-

a) The recognition of the Iraqi Government regarding the Armenian genocide.
b) To have an Armenian representative in the Iraqi Parliament on quota basis.
2- A visit to Kuffa University which was a pleasant surprise.
3- My lecture at Kuffa University about Armenian Genocide.
4- a)On April 23rd, at 10:00 Am a silent demonstration to and then in front of the Turkish Embassy in Baghdad.
(It is interesting to note that the Turks did not receive our message of protest, which was read in Arabic by Mr. Melkon Melkonian, and instead lowered their flag. If any thing this act of theirs indicted their acquiescence to the Armenian cause ).
b) The showing of live transmissions on a big TV screen in our Cathedral in Baghdad on the occasion of the beautification ceremony for the Armenian Martyrs of the Genocide in the open Church in the complex of Holy Echmiadzin in Armenia.
c) tolling the bell in our Cathedral in Baghdad 100 times with the participation of high ranking clergymen,none-Armenian friends of us and our Armenian faithful. .
