Demonstrators are waving Armenian and American flags on Tuesday and carrying signs that read "1915 never again" and "Turkish denial must end". "The Roman persecution of the Christians, the Turkish massacres of Armenians, the extermination of millions of Jews and Poles by the Nazis are outstanding examples of the crime of genocide".
On the 103rd anniversary of the Armenian Genocide, Rep. Devin Nunes took time to mark the occasion and use that word to describe the massacre of more than 1 million Armenians at the hands of the Ottoman Turks. Forty eight USA states have recognized the Armenian Genocide through resolution or proclamation.
The Netherlands adopted a resolution reaffirming the recognition of the Armenian Genocide on February 22, 2018 according to which a representative of the country's government must visit Armenia every five years to participate in the Genocide commemorative events.
"We expect the USA administration to evaluate the period, when all peoples of the Ottoman Empire suffered tremendous pain, in a fair manner", the foreign ministry said, adding that they remind the USA president that there were over 500,000 Muslim people slaughtered by Armenian insurgents in the same period.

Argentina, Belgium, Bolivia, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Denmark, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Lebanon, Lithuania, Russia, and Uruguay are among almost 30 countries that formally recognized the Armenian genocide.
On Tuesday, the Armenians honor the memory of people killed in the genocide, which started in Ottoman Empire in 1915.
Erdogan said Turkey in the future will continue to "share the pain and try to find solutions" to the problems of the country's ethnic Armenian citizens.
On this solemn day, we stand with the Armenian people throughout the world in honoring the memory of those lost and commit to work together to build a better future.
