TURKISH ARMENIAN COMMUNITY: 1915 EVENTS ARE NOT GENOCIDE
April 14 2010
Representatives of the Armenian community in Turkey stated that the
events of 1915 in the Ottoman Empire can not be called "genocide."
According to them, it was a civil war, which affected not only
Armenians but the Turks and other nationalities living in the Ottoman
Empire, the Turkish newspaper "Hurriyet" reported.
Armenia claims that the Ottoman Empire committed "genocide" against
Armenians living in Anatolia in 1915. Making greater efforts to promote
the issue internationally, Armenians have achieved its recognition
by parliaments in some countries. It is expected that in connection
with the anniversary of the so-called "Armenian genocide" in April
Armenian lobby will strengthen activity in the world’s parliaments,
especially in the U.S. Congress.
