US Calls Turkey to Admit Unilateral Responsibility in 1915 Events

The US State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf on Tuesday called Turkey to acknowledge the 1915 events without mentioning the crimes of Armenian gangs at the same period.

The US State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf on Tuesday called Turkey to acknowledge the 1915 events without mentioning the crimes of Armenian gangs at the same period.

“The president and other senior administration officials have repeatedly acknowledged as historical fact, and mourned the fact, that 1.5 million Armenians were massacred or marched to their deaths in the final days of the Ottoman Empire,” Harf told reporters.

The 1915 events took place during World War I when a portion of the Armenian population living in the Ottoman Empire sided with invading Russians and revolted against the empire.

The Ottoman Empire relocated Armenians in eastern Anatolia following the revolts, resulting in Armenian casualties during the relocation process.

Armenia has demanded an apology and compensation, while Turkey has refuted Armenian claims about the incidents saying that although Armenians died during the relocations, many Turks also lost their lives in attacks carried out by Armenian gangs in Anatolia.
