# 24 July 2015 07:48 (UTC +04:00)

124 members of the House of Representatives voted for the document, 8 abstained and no one voted against.

The opposition criticized text of the resolution noting the importance of an ambiguous document. However, Belgian Prime Minister Charles Michel voted for the document, as he recognized the "Armenian genocide" on behalf of his government on June 18.

The Belgian Senate recognized the so-called "Armenian genocide" in 1998.
