Washington: Reality star Kim Kardashian has taken on Tweeter to urge Turkey to finally recognize the Armenian Genocide.

The sultry star also wrote a blog on her website detailing her stand on the 1915 atrocity.

“It’s time to recognize the Armenian Genocide,” Radar online quoted Kardashian as tweeting.

“My family and I are incredibly proud of our heritage. My dad taught me a lot about Armenian culture, and I have a strong connection with my roots.

“Even though so many countries around the world recognize the Genocide, the government of Turkey still denies it,” she wrote on her website.

The ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians’ star said that recognition is important to her saying, “Out of respect for all those innocent people that died, I’m putting a spotlight on it today.

“Until this crime is resolved truthfully and fairly, the Armenian people will live with the pain of what happened to their families and the fear of what might happen again to their homeland,” she added.
