Associated Press Never Wrote of Armenian Genocide in Quotes

PanARMENIAN.Net - The topic of the Armenian Genocide in Ottoman Turkey in 1915 is not banned in the American press. As an editor of the Associated Press stated in a conversation with a PanARMENIAN.Net reporter, the AP works to call things by their proper names. "We have always written that there was Armenian Genocide, however the US Administration does not recognize it, speaking merely of "tragic events during WWI. As for the AP, we never put that term in quotes," he underscored.



In the opinion of most US politicians, "difficulties with using that term are due to US-Turkish relations. The majority consider Turkey's accession to the EU a priority and this is the reason for their keeping silent in that issue. Democrats will not adopt Armenian Genocide legislation either," a political consultant on electoral technologies underscored, adding that the "for the US the Armenian Genocide was long ago and happened on a different planet, thus it is not interesting for an ordinary American. He is more interested in the issue of authorizing abortion and the war in Iraq. In this exact sequence.»
