U.S. President-elect won't recognize Armenian Genocide, Andranik Tevanyan says

PanARMENIAN.Net - Both Turkey and Armenia are interested in opening of the border but Turkey's economy will benefit more in this case, an Armenian expert said.



"At that, the process of international recognition of the Armenian genocide will wane with the thaw in Armenian-Turkish relations," Andranik Tevanyan, head of political economy research institute, said when responding to a PanARMENIANAN.Net reporter's question.



"I am apt to think that under the circumstances U.S. President-elect Barack Obama won't recognize the Armenian Genocide in annual April 24 statement in an effort to support Turkey-Armenia reconciliation," he said.
