No "genocide" for Armenians, just "great tragedy", Trump says

Ankara offers condolences to families of victims of 1915 events

Armenian national squad captain and Arsenal midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan has commemorated Armenian Genocide, on the 103rd anniversary of this tragedy. "In light of current developments in Turkey, it's now more important than ever that the USA administration commemorate the tragic genocide of the Armenian people".

The statement said that Turkey's expectation from the USA administration was a "fair assessment of a period during which all the peoples of the Ottoman Empire suffered tremendously".

Executive Director Aram Hamparian issued this response to President Donald Trump's failure to lead an honest American remembrance of the Armenian Genocide in his commemorative statement issued earlier today.

Erdogan said Armenians "lost their lives during the fierce and harsh conditions of the First World War" drawing a comparison "with millions of Ottoman citizens we lost due to contagious diseases, migration, war and clashes during the same period".

In January the French president, Emmanuel Macron, added 24 April to the French calendar to commemorate the events 100 years ago. We remind and warn the civilized world that crimes committed against human genofond on behalf of the Armenian Genocide, are the gravest in the series of the encroachments being implemented towards human life.

In a statement to mark Armenian Remembrance Day, Trump said the US recalled "the horrific events of 1915 and grieve for the lives lost and the many who suffered".

Turkey's position is that the deaths of Armenians in eastern Anatolia in 1915 took place when some sided with invading Russians and revolted against Ottoman forces. At the Hollywood and Fairfax District events, Armenians and their supporters carried flags and signs, denouncing the genocide and calling on the United States to officially recognize it. Ankara has repeatedly proposed the creation of a joint commission of historians from Turkey and Armenia, along with worldwide experts, to tackle the issue.
