"APOLOGY, RECOGNITION, REPARATION AND FORGIVENESS MUST BE TAKEN AS ONE WHOLE"
Declared His Holiness Aram I at the Opening of the International Conference on the Armenian Genocide: From Recognition to Reparation

"As a first concrete step in the direction of reparation, Turkey must return the church and community properties confiscated by the Ottoman Turkish authorities to its legal owner, the Armenian Catholicosate of Cilicia. As Catholicosate of Cilicia, which was established in the 10th Century in Cilicia, south-western part of present Turkey, and which was in 1915 forcefully uprooted from its historical seat, we claim the ownership of our properties confiscated by the Turkish authorities."
