Speaker of the Israeli Knesset Yuli Edelstein on Monday pulled recognition of the genocide of the Armenian people from the parliament’s agenda, local media reported citing Edelstein’s spokeswoman.
According to the Jerusalem Post newspaper, the Knesset was expected to vote on recognizing the Armenian Genocide on Tuesday, but Edelstein, who stands for the recognition, decided not to discuss the issue because it was unclear whether the majority of lawmakers would vote in its favor.
