"Instead of confirming the claims of the Armenian diaspora, President Biden should have called for an investigation into these events,” the administration said. “The US must understand that this is a serious blow to the relations between Ankara and Washington and Biden's statements will not remain without consequences."
“Despite Biden's statements, we once again affirm that there was no genocide against Armenians in Turkey, and Biden's statements have no legal basis," the administration said.
US President Jozeph Biden called the events of 1915 in the Ottoman Empire “genocide".
Armenia and the Armenian lobby claim that Turkey's predecessor, the Ottoman Empire, allegedly carried out so-called "genocide" against the Armenians living in Anatolia in 1915.
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan stated previously that there was no genocide against Armenians in the history of Turkey and the events of 1915 need investigation.
Turkey called on Armenia to open the archives of 1915 and create a joint commission to investigate the events. But Armenia has not yet responded to Turkey's proposal.
