Armenian Genocide: Erdogan Says Turkey Has 'Responsibility' to Share 'Historical Pain'

Armenian Genocide: Erdogan Says Turkey Has 'Responsibility' to Share 'Historical Pain'

On April 24 the Ambassador visited the Armenian Genocide Memorial in Yerevan to pay tribute to the memory of innocent victims. Forty-eight of our USA states have recognized the Armenian Genocide, as have a dozen of our North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies - including France and Germany, the European Union, and, of course, Pope Francis.

"U.S. credibility on human rights and genocide prevention will be better served when we unequivocally affirm the Armenian Genocide". In 2017, it accused the U.S. president, Donald Trump, of "misinformation" when he stopped short of using the word genocide but marked "one of the worst mass atrocities of the 20th century".

The Armenian National Committee of America (ANCA) called on Trump to end America's "Turkey First" approach to Meds Yeghern.

The former United States presidents, starting from 1981, including Barack Obama, also refused to call the historical events a "genocide".

There are numerous documents considering the massacres of the Armenian people as a pre-planned and thoroughly implemented act of genocide. Many historians consider it the first genocide of the 20th century.

Thousands of Armenians and their supporters gathered mid-morning near Hollywood Boulevard and Western Avenue for a march sponsored by Unified Young Armenians. The U.S. House of Representatives adopted legislation on the Armenian Genocide in 1975, 1984 and 1996.




The Turkish president offered condolences to the families of Ottoman Armenians who lost their lives during the 1915 events.

Armenia says an estimated 1.5 million people were killed by Ottoman forces in 1915, and has labeled the massacre a genocide.

The Armenian-Turkish relations are negatively influenced by what is recognized as the genocide of Armenians by Armenia and dozens of other countries.

"As we honor the memory of those who suffered, we also reflect on our commitment to ensure that such atrocities are not repeated", the president said.

"We will continue to share your pain and try to resolve your problems in the future", Erdogan added.
