Yerevan (Agenzia Fides) - The broadcasting on commemorative events dedicated to the hundredth anniversary of the Armenian Genocide - concentrated especially in the days between 22 and 24 April - were followed on average worldwide by one billion three hundred million viewers. This was revealed by the Head of the Presidential Administration Vigen Sargsyan, during a press conference held on the sidelines of a forum dedicated to the collective memory of the massacres planned by the Young Turks in Anatolia in 1915. According to Sargsyan, the result reached by the broadcasting and information services on the Genocide is also due to the coordination between the media operating in Armenia and Armenian media workers who belong to the communities of the diaspora.
