YEREVAN, ARMENPRESS. In Saudi Arabia, master Tauasif bint Hamid bin Muqbil al-Unzi defended a thesis on the topic of the Armenian Genocide with distinction, reaffirming the historical fact that the Armenian Genocide really happened. She also spoke about the reasons behind the denial of this fact by some states.

The purpose of her study is to uncover Britain’s policy towards the Armenian Genocide of 1915. The study has several objectives, the most important of which are:
