Biden Tells Erdogan He’ll Call Armenian Massacre a Genocide says Bloomberg

US President Biden sends message on bicentennial of 1821 Greek Revolution

Biden is anticipated to use the word “genocide” in a declaration Saturday recognising the Armenian Genocide Remembrance Day, making good on a promise from his presidential campaign. He would be the first U.S. president in 40 years to publicly acknowledge the 1915 mass killings as a genocide.

The White House did not mention the issue in a statement below about Biden’s call with Erdogan, the first of his presidency, saying only that Biden told the Turkish leader that he’s interested in a “constructive bilateral relationship with expanded areas of cooperation and effective management of disagreements.”
