Hundreds of Yerevan Residents Commemorate Genocide of Armenians

The

French President Emmanuel Macron has issued the following statement, addressed to Armenian President Armen Sarkissian, on the occasion of the 103rd anniversary of the 1915 Armenian Genocide.

The U.S. leader used the term used by the Armenian "meds Yeghern", calling it one of the most bad crimes of XX century. Up to 1.5 million Armenians have been killed starting from 1915 in a systematic campaign by the government of Turkey.

"We reject an inaccurate expression, and subjective interpretation of events contained in the statement".

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

Armenians and Turks held demonstrations Tuesday in front of the Turkish embassy in the USA capital to mark the 103rd anniversary of the events of 1915 during the First World War, Anadolu Agency reports. They closed by asking that the President: "appropriately mark April 24th as a day of American remembrance of the Armenian Genocide".

The president said in his message to the Armenian Patriarch in Istanbul that "to share these pains is a requirement of the conscientious and moral posture of the Turkish nation".

The U.S. first recognized the Armenian Genocide in 1951 through a filing which was included in the International Court of Justice (ICJ) Report titled: "Reservations to the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide".

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

Armenia pushed for greater recognition of the deaths as genocide in the run-up to the centennial anniversary in 2015 leading to resolutions being passed by the European Parliament, Germany and several other countries' parliaments.

Turkey, the successor to the Ottoman Empire, vehemently denies that the massacre was genocide and insists it was part of the violence during World War I.
