Baku, April 25, AZERTAC
A group from the Turkish-US community here in Washington protested President Joe Biden's recognition of 1915 events as "genocide" on Saturday, Anadolu Agency reports.
The crowd at the Turkish Ambassador's residence on Sheridan Circle held Turkish and Azerbaijan flags and banners that read: "Let History Decide," and "Reconciliation, Not Genocide Accusations."
The demonstration came hours after Biden called the events of 1915 a "genocide," breaking US presidents' long-held tradition of refraining from using the term.
The move was strongly rejected by Turkey as “null and void.”
