Turkey Calls On US To Refrain From Recognising So-Called Armenian ‘Genocide’
Turkey calls on the US to refrain from recognising the so-called ‘genocide’ of Armenians, according to Azerbaijan in Focus, reporting Trend News, with reference to Turkish media on March 31.
According to the media, Turkish authorities notified the US presidential administration through diplomatic channels that the recognition of the so-called ‘genocide’ of Armenians is fraught with huge damage to relations between Ankara and Washington.
Turkey has repeatedly called on Armenia to open historical archives to investigate the events of 1915, but the authorities of this country in every possible way reject these proposals.
Armenia and the Armenian lobby claim that Turkey’s predecessor, the Ottoman Empire, allegedly carried out so-called ‘genocide’ against the Armenians who lived in the empire’s Anatolia province.
