North West is enjoying the sights of Armenia with mom, Kim Kardashian, and dad, Kanye West. The little one was recently photographed while being carried through various parts of the region by mom.
North was the curious toddler who looked around as photographers and fans took pictures. Kim also gave paparazzi her attention while holding her daughter and walking alongside family members.
The ‘Keeping Up With the Kardashians’ star has met with several state leaders since arriving in Armenia earlier this week. Kim and her family are visiting the area to honor the millions of Armenians murdered a century ago in the region that is now recognized as the Republic of Turkey. Although many classify the killings as genocide, the Turkish government refuses to acknowledge the act as being an attempt to annihilate a race of people.
Kim has expressed her frustration in the government’s refusal to properly acknowledge the massacre as such on various social media outlets. The star even wrote a blog on the subject several years back in which she told readers, “It happened before Rwanda, Darfur, and the Holocaust. Maybe none of those other genocides would have happened if more nations had condemned the Armenian Genocide, when 1.5 million Armenians were massacred.”
The victims of the Armenian Genocide will be remembered on April 24, 2015. North West is Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s only child.
