APA’s European bureau reports that organizing committee posted information about it on a special created website www.sevres2015.org.

For implementing this project, Armenian diasporas all over the world created a special fund. The project is supported by some pro-Armenian social, political and scientific figures.

Note that Sevre city was not chosen by chance. Thus, in this small village in France on August 10, 1920 between the Allied nations and the Ottoman Empire signed the Treaty of Sevre. Under the agreement, the Ottoman Empire was effectively divided between large states and in the eastern part of the country planned to create the Armenian state. However, on August 19 the Grand National Assembly of Turkey stated not to recognize the Treaty of Sevres and the willingness to defend every inch of Turkish land. For this reason, the agreement was only on paper.

The work on the implementation of the "Sevre 2015" project, on the 100 anniversary of the “Armenian genocide” launched in September last year. Currently, the organization manages by Doctor of Law, academician Gerard Gergeryan, living in France. Lobbying support for the project has a number of well-known persons of the country, such as Patrick Devijyan. The opening ceremony of the memorial complex with the presidents of Armenia and France is scheduled for 2015.
