Ankara offers condolences to families of victims of 1915 events

"Our gratitude to dozen of countries that have recognized the Armenian Genocide".

We will press ahead with our work to end USA complicity in Ankara's obstruction of justice, in order to put in place a USA policy that actively pressures Ankara to abandon its denials, reckon with its responsibilities, and engage directly with Armenian stakeholders toward a truthful, just, and comprehensive worldwide resolution of this crime against humanity.

"A protocol to create a historical commision to look into the Armenian issue from 1915", said Gunay Evinch, of the Turkish-American National Steering Committee.

U.S president Trump in a statement Tuesday used the Armenian phrase translated as "great evil" or "great calamity" to describe the mass killings of Armenians in the Ottoman Empire during World War I. He did not use the word "genocide", a term crucial for many Armenians but hotly rejected by Turkey.

Aroutin Hartounian, president of the Unified Young Armenians, told AFP the atmosphere was "more positive" because "there was a victory for the youth, the new generation, the democratic ideals" - referring to Sarkisian's resignation.

Eugene Cole , as well as four still shots taken during the alleged robbery of a convenience store following the shooting. Detective Landry was shot to death on March 31, 1989 while investigating a child abuse complaint in Leeds.

In January the French president, Emmanuel Macron, added 24 April to the French calendar to commemorate the events 100 years ago.

More than 100 US lawmakers signed a letter calling on Trump to acknowledge during this year's anniversary that Meds Yeghern was genocide. The practice of genocide has occurred throughout human history. The U.S. House of Representatives adopted legislation on the Armenian Genocide in 1975, 1984 and 1996.

Thousands of people are taking part in annual Los Angeles marches commemorating the deaths of an estimated 1.5 million Armenians under the Ottoman Empire.

"I remember with respect the Ottoman Armenians who lost their lives, and offer my honest condolences to their children and descendants", he said.

Erdogan also called on the Armenian community not to allow those who are trying to ignite hatred and hostility by distorting "our shared past".
