Biden officially recognizes Armenian genocide

United States President Joe Biden officially recognized the Armenian genocide in the White House’s official statement commemorating the event on Saturday.

The statement begins with “we remember the lives of all those who died in the Ottoman-era Armenian genocide and recommit ourselves to preventing such an atrocity from ever again occurring.” It further goes on to add that the US “honors the victims of the Meds Yeghern so that the horrors of what happened are never lost to history.”

Turkey’s Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu responded to the statement immediately saying that “we entirely and strongly reject this statement based solely on populism,” adding that “Turkey has nothing to learn from anybody about its own past.”
