Armenian Youth Federation Statement

The Armenian Youth Federation (Youth Organisation of the ARF-Dashnaktsutyun), strongly condemns the acts of terror carried out in Norway, and especially the shootings at the summer camp of the Labour Youth (AUF, the youth organisation of the Norwegian Labour Party), which claimed the lives of tens of youth and youngsters.

There is no way to explain this inhuman act.

Having been victims of state and non-state terrorism throughout our history, we deeply appreciate the agony and pain such barbaric acts cause to society.

The Armenian Youth Federation expresses its sincere condolences to the families of the victims and to the members and leadership of its socialist organisation, the Labour Youth of the Norwegian Labour Party.

Within the circles of the International Union of Socialist Youth we have worked and cooperated with the Labour Youth of the Norwegian Labour Party and have always witnessed their belief and commitment towards human values.

God bless the souls of the victims and give solace to the survivors.
