US Should Be Ashamed For Not Recognizing Armenian Genocide

US SHOULD BE ASHAMED FOR NOT RECOGNIZING ARMENIAN GENOCIDE

YEREVAN, MARCH 2. ARMINFO. It is shameful that the U.S. has not
publicly recognized the Armenian Genocide, says Hellenic News of
America.

The world community and the academic community overwhelmingly
recognize the Armenian Genocide. The Library of Congress held a major
conference on the Armenian Genocide several years ago. Yet the State
Department continues its opposition to recognition. The U.S. should
also publicly call for the removal of Turkey-s illegal economic
blockage of Armenia which also prevents U.S. humanitarian aid to
Armenia.

The U.S. media has failed to cover adequately the situation in Turkey
for decades. They have taken handouts and statements from
U.S. officials without serious questioning or investigation. Speeches
and interviews by Deputy Secretary of Defense Paul Wolfowitz and
former Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs Marc Grossman
for years have contained blatant falsehoods, misleading statements and
serious omissions of fact regarding:

To remind, during his recent meeting with US Armenians US Ambassador
to Armenia John Evans characterized the 1915 events in Ottoman Empire
by the term “genocide” saying that it was his personal opinion. But
the US official policy on the issue has not changed as the US has
traditional ties with Turkey in the framework of NATO.
